Brings a sparkle to the eye

Named using the Japanese word for areas of light, shallow water in oceans or rivers, this sparkling sake has a playful carbonation that delivers pleasing flavors of pear and grape brightly across the palate. The gently sweet flavor combines with a moderate acidity, which makes this sake a particularly delightful aperitif. To elevate the experience, be sure to chill the bottle and glass before serving.
