Pouring sake were E. Corp, BDC and Southern Wine & Spirits. It was a treat to pair Joto Daigingo Sake with the naturally salty raw oysters. It was quite smooth with an aroma of honeysuckle.
Pedro Ximénez is the grape variety used to make this sherry. As a photographer I was attracted to this one because the color was so warm and beautiful like an aged Barolo. But it had a lovely balance of fruit for me at the end of this evening.
