"Horai Kaden Tedukuri" Junmai Ginjo Sake
Clear color. Tropical aromas and flavors of ripe pineapple and papaya, baked coconut, anise seed, and goat’s milk with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and an even, compelling, medium-long sweet cream, spicy almond brittle, radish, and hint caramelized bacon finish. A vibrantly delicious tropical fruit-driven sake that is sure to please.
