Yukikage is clean and crisp, effortlessly evoking an alpine waterfall or high elevation meadow. This low-volume, pure prettiness-- Japanese tasting notes sometimes call it "gorgeousness"--is seriously undervalued at $26/btl. 

Lightly spiced with notes of fresh nutmeg and chestnut, soft poached pear, green apple flesh, and fresh white mushroom, finishing super clean. A real beauty with highly flavorful, spicy otsumami based on shellfish, like fresh crab tossed in yuzu kosho.
