- Pale emerald green with a crystalline sheen. The surface of the liquid, which has a deep bronze color, first conveys a tense and gentle aroma, then a wide range of aromas including citrus, honeydew melon, white peach, and loquat. Lemongrass, gardenia, lily of the valley, thyme, lotus, and a hint of walnut are also present. The addition of the cool minerality of melting snow makes it seem as if there are four seasons in the glass. From the moment it touches the palate, it has a centripetal force that draws you in at once, and the diverse flavors are precisely blended into a dense whole. It has a speedy expansion and broadening, but at the same time it has a soft and delicate texture that softly envelops the entire palate, and as it moves deeper into the mouth, the acidity that gradually emerges covers the entire mouth. It is as if it has created a state of extreme resistance, but here again, the balance between the relative senses of strength and gentleness is exquisite and pleasing. The broad and deep aftertaste seems to last forever, and one senses warmth in a very dignified manner.
