A whimsical marriage of using the ancient Kimoto starter for a truly modern and contemporary sake with hints of fresh peaches, & white lilies on the nose. On the palate, exceedingly clean with vanilla, apricots and golden kiwis. A proprietary yeast blend which includes hana-kobo (Flower Yeast) adds to the gorgeous & delicate mouthfeel overall.¬†
