Tears of Dawn
From one of Japan’s smallest breweries, this Daiginjo is made with Japan’s highest quality rice and local Fushimi mizu, the soft, pure water from Japan’s Eastern Mountains. Highly-respected rice farmer Masayasu Tanaka carefully works the naturally fertilized soils of his farm in eastern Tottori prefecture to grow some of Japan’s best quality Yamada Nishiki, considered the pinnacle of premium sake rice. Maximum annual production of this sake from Tanaka-san’s rice is less than 1400 6-bottle cases!
The aromas of anise, banana, and a hint of sweet rice are quite complex. These same flavors come rushing through the full-bodied palate followed by such a pleasantly long and clean finish that you’ll hurry back for more!

"Clear with a nickel cast. Bright honeyed Asian pear, ripe pineapple husk, and delicate lemongrass and anise aromas follow through on a soft, silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium with excellent depth and glassy smoothness. Finishes with a long, refreshing fade with a hint of coconut milk. Excellent vibrancy and acidity for the table."
