Rated 92 by Ultimate Beverage Challenge
2018 Ultimate Wine Challenge - With a hue the clearness of a winter lake, this sake has scents of cantaloupe, red plum, caraway, almond skin, and roasted fennel. The palate begins with sweet melon tones but then rapidly shifts to toasted grains and a spicy conclusion..June/2018

Additional Information on Akashi-Tai Sake Tokubetsu Honjozo

Winery Akashi-Tai

Country: Japan

All over Japan, farmers and wine producers take the production of alcoholic beverages including plum wine and sake very seriously. It is an industry which dates back well over a thousand years, and is held in high esteem in this far east country, where plum wines and sake often accompany meals and are used for ceremonial purposes. Whilst plum wine is produced in a relatively similar way to grape based wines, sake requires a complex process more akin to the brewing of beer, except using a rice mash instead of other grains. The rising popularity of both of these drinks in the west has seen the drinks industry in Japan increase dramatically over recent years, and both quality and quantity has risen alongside demand, and is expected to rise further.
