This is the second Kumpai Brewery bottle I tasted this year. Incidentally Kumpai Brewery, Shizuoka City, Suruga Ku, reaceived an award recently in Nagoya.

Kumpai-Sakur is a Daiginjo, made from Yamada Nishiki Rice milled down to 40% in March 2007.
Dryness: +4~5

Aroma: Flowers/Gardenia

Colour: Clear, Transparent

Clarity: Perfectly clear

Body: Light & syrupy

Taste: Flowers/Melon.
Almost at first but quickly becomes drier in the palate.
A sake that could well replce a full-bodied white wine in any meal
