Tensei 'Endless Summer' Tokubetsu Honjozo Sake, Kanagawa, Japan (720ml)   

This sake is a "session" style, does not weigh down the palate and can be consumed on its own as well as it matches with food, conveys the feeling of an "endless summer." Fuller in body than most "Tokubetsu Honjozo" due to the higher mineral content in the water. From the "surfer" region of Japan, this bright, refreshing sake has a distinctly oceanic salinity.
