Four Hot Words: Layered, Light, Clean, & Drinkable - This is another great Daiginjo from a brewery known for making Daiginjo sake. "Gold" has an elegant nose comprised of green apple, sweet rice, plum skin, and peach aromas. What do you call that sake that is complex enough for the pros and drinkable enough for the sake newbies? You call it Gold! Add some tremendous packaging and you get a stellar sake with layers of smooth and even fruit tones from grapes and pears to apple sauce and a hint of citrus. Behold a peek-a-boo vein of vanilla on a fluid flow that has far more personality in a smaller glass. A larger glass makes this easy drinking sake even easier. If you have a hard time with alcohol elements in a sake then this Daiginjo is for you as there is no alcohol twang. Truly Gold in a glass! WORD: Gentle WINE: Smooth Reds/ Round whites BEER: Clean Ales FOODS: Look for cuisines with gentle attitude and subtle complexities from exotic flavors to everyday fare.
