The best Japanese sake tradition personifies nature. The Y Snow brings you to a place where clouds meet the earth, flakes speckle cedar, and water flows, sinewy and transparent, over polished grey rocks.
The Snow, in a word, is luscious. Its natural tropical fruit aromas derived from the painstaking koji process (turning of starch in each highly polished grain of rice into sugars) and the multiple parallel fermentation of daiginjo sake making is left totally unfettered - rough filtered so that the wine caresses the palate with its medium sweet, creamy texture and sensuous, wall-to-wall flavors. Gently powerful.
Food Matches: Robust ribs in sweet-spicy marinades; coconut laced curries; chicken-everybody-likes (tandoori, chile, achiote, jerk, McNuggets); fondue and ponzu, jambalaya and etoufee, chocolate and tapioca… anything fun!
