Japanese Sake

Today I am in Japan, the home of cherry blossoms, Kobe beef and sake.
For a wine drinker, once you try a high quality sake you’ll be amazed at the flavours, balance and complexity of this ancient Japanese drink. I sampled two Niigata sakes last night, both delightful and excellent drinking. The Niigata Omashi was slightly sweet with great balance and flavours of juniper berries. A soft and lingering finish made for great enjoyment with prawn and vegetable tempura. The Niigata Matsunoi was a little drier with plush mouthfeel and long finish. Both highly recommended.
