Cast your preconceptions aside, tasting sake is totally different to wine. Start with texture, which in this treat from Matsumoto Shuhari balances slippery richness with a salty grip. Then explore exotic fruit aromas like lychee and fig and a freshness that contrast savoury flavours with the salty tang that complements them.
