Konteki Pearls of Simplicity 720ml
The epitome of purity, this sake is more subtle and nuanced than most highly aromatic Junmai Daiginjos. It is based on the ideals of Zen Buddhism and "wabi-sabi," the belief that beauty within the arts should be as understated and pure as a simple strand of pearls. One of two sakes brewed in exactly the same way with the same ingredients, except this one is a Junmai Daiginjo and Tears of Dawn has added distilled alcohol to open up aromatics.
Aromas of white flower and Asian pear followed by clean flavors of honeydew, lemon, and a hint of licorice. Finishes elegantly with rich minerality and rice texture. This is a great sipping sake but also a wonderful companion to scallops, pork, and light meats.
