Shichi Hon Yari Shizuku Silent Samurai Junmai Daiginjo Sake 500ml
Brewery: "Shizuku” means “drops,” because the sake is not pressed, but rather allowed to drip out of cloth bags filled with the finished brew. Shizuku Daiginjos are light and ethereal. This is a Junmai Daiginjo but maintains the Shichi Hon Yari style which is earthy and rustic. The pressed version of this sake was in the top group of Robert Parker’s recent tasting of 800 sakes.
Tasting Note: Ethereal and delicate in keeping with the shizuku (free run) method, but showing Shichi Hon Yari's style with toasty notes of brown butter.
Delicious on its own, gently chilled, or excellent with triple cream cheese and fatty tuna."
