karakuchiki

Karakuchi Kiippon is Masumi's long-time favorite dry sake, with an aroma reminiscent of young Fuji apples leading to a surprisingly flavorful balance of subtle sweetness, acidity, and an astringency that leaves the palate clean and dry. Pair with dark meat fish, vegetables--especially astringent elements like asparagus, artichoke, & rucola.
