Sake “N” by Hidetoshi Nakata & Takagi Shuzo 品嚐N清酒 – 16/11/2017

今天在澳門永利皇宮日本餐廳泓一嚐中田英壽與製造十四代的山形縣高木酒造合作之「N」清酒。有梨渦的磨砂瓶子設計甚具玩味,型格得來有點調皮,瓶身頗重而色澤似黑實藍,神秘又美麗。酒味柔亦帶剛,紋理中見感性,芬芳優雅,最初有馥郁的蜜瓜和白桃,後段滲出絲絲清純的明豔鮮花香和泉水滑石氣息,複雜有深度。

Sake “N” is the collaboration of Hidetoshi Nakata & Takagi Shuzo in Yamagata Prefecture. Quite impressed by the chic blackish-blue coloured bottle & package design, particularly in love with the matte finish and dimple (yes, on the bottle!), which project an image of classy elegance & decent playfulness. Not a particularly aromatic one while the sake was first poured due to low storage temperature, but it started to open up bit by bit over time in room temperature. On palate it’s delicate yet finely structured, soft but complex, mouth filled with beautiful melon & white peach flavours, with an aftertaste full of white flowers & fountain-watered pebbles. A sake with precise depth that needs time and attention.
