Because it is brewed from grain, sake could be classified as beer instead of as wine. But in this instance, the taste buds prevailed over logic. Ginga Shizuku Divine Droplets Junmai Daiginjo Sake—belonging to the category of sake in which at least 50 percent of the rice grain is polished away before brewing—is a revelation worthy of any oenophile’s attention. Rich and aromatic, it delivers complex, elegant, Riesling-like flavors of cream, melon, and tropical fruit, before fading ever so slowly into a memorable finish.
