"Pear, melon, fruity, young grassy greenness with a hint of Camembert cheese behind. Lychee juice, grilled fried tofu as temperature rises. The attack is clean and smooth, with a delicious flavour that develops in the mouth as the temperature rises. Slowly develops into a rich, savoury umami. Recommended served cold. "

"The nose is based on youthful grapefruit and lychee notes, which are harmonised with astringent aromas of apricot curd, white bean dumplings and kneaded sesame, as well as woody notes of cypress and boxwood. It has a mild, creamy, gentle sweetness and a lingering umami flavour that gives it fullness. It is best enjoyed at 10-15°C with a large, flat sake cup."
