'Delicate, smooth and fragrant, this smells of white flowers and melons, and tastes a little bit of star fruit. It may be expensive but will keep opened in the fridge for up to a month, and confound the expectations of anyone accustomed to lamp-oil sake.' --- by Victoria Moore / The Guardian, Saturday 10 May 2008 Akashi-Tai recommend pairing this with sea bream, scallops, melon, prosciutto and lamb.
