The ultimate luxury sake that is made from the most premium of all rice strains and polished down to an exceedingly labor-intensive 35%. Out of the 24 grades of Yamada Nishiki rice, this sake is made from the very highest (Toku A Tokujo-Mai) and then made in the non-pressed free run shizuku style resulting in extreme purity. Silent Stream is named after the clear and untouched water that that originates deep in the jagged, snow-covered Nasu Mountains. Soft lime, mint, and lychee dominate the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of honeydew, pear and fresh cut hay amplified by vibrant acidity. The laser-focused finish has an enjoyable dusty character with clean anise-like flavors. Pair with red snapper with lemon and mint, stilton with apricots, pate.
