2016 BTI World Wine Championships Gold Medal-90pt (Exceptional)
Medium straw color. Green, creamy aromas and flavors of dried citrus and melon in cream, bamboo, Greek
yogurt, and caulk with a silky, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, breezy honey baked apple,
jicama, and green pineapple and coconut finish. An appetizing sake for the table.

Not all premium sake can be drunk both chilled and hot, but Kurosawa is one of the
exceptions and is often enjoyed warm by sake experts and connoisseurs. Warming this
sake will smooth out its strong characteristics. On the other hand, drinking this sake
chilled is the best way to enjoy its acidity.
