KIRA HONZOJO

Sommelier Alice’s Tasting Note: This sake is very crisp and dry and has a unique metallic nuance. Aroma of asparagus and cucumber followed by green apple and kabosu citrus. On the palate, you will feel a hint of sea salt or minerals mixed together with green notes such as pepper and basil. I would recommend this sake for a 'contrast pairing' as it's vivid acidity beautifully cuts through fatty dishes.
