IWA 5 A3
SHIRAIWA KURA from TOYAMA PREFECTURE
Best served COLD
CLEAN • BALANCED • FRAGRANT • INTENSE
This is the second successive Assemblage formulated while in France by Richard Geoffroy.
Each Assemblage of IWA 5 keeps true to Sake, yet departs from convention in many aspects.
First and foremost, the global expression of classical Sake is shifted to a greater equilibrium between nose and palate. Palatability is key, actual IWA 5’s main asset. A major emphasis is put on the finish. The aftertaste lingers and remains the memory of the Sake, satisfying, refined and smooth: a unique combination of vibrant aromatics, of the sweet, the bitter, the sour, the spicy and the umami.
Intensity is the salient character, giving an edge to a racy and mouthwatering conclusion
Intense, pure, highly defined. The first notes are bright ones, intriguingly vegetal, more floral than fruity. The sake calls for a moment of respiration to grow more complex through darker lower tones. White pepper - IWA’s aromatic signature - is clearly present.
One is instantly struck by the impression of superlative balance and coherence. The weightlessness of the sake unfolds with great tonicity. All sensations seamlessly converge, drawn to a racy, tactile, intense, mouthwatering finish.
