WHAT AN EXPERT SAYS: Milk and rice, with a rich creamy nose; quite spritzy with hints of grated radish, milk, a touch of spice. Very dry and intense; untypically this is not at all sweet. Long and subtle; will work very well with creamy sauces. A touch of soy on the very back of the palate will make this food friendly. A perfect match for salmon fried in soy, yuzu pepper and salt.
