True Selects - Miwa and Lynette Select Monthly Brews October 2008

Posted by admin in 2008, Newsletter, October, Sake Selects

sake selects oct 2008Welcome to "True Selects" - featured sakes that are selected and championed by Miwa and Lynette - our two resident sake studs. As we can only stock so many different brands of sake - think limited space - this effort is a way to offer sakes that we wouldn't usually carry. They will select by price-point, uniqueness, availability, and other factors that make these selections unusual for the store.

Miwa = Naraman Junmai Muroka Bin Hiire 

This limited edition line of Naraman is from the Yumegogoro Brewery in Fukushima. Only 3000 bottles are produced in one year. It is pasteurized once in the bottle (bin hiire) and not charcoal filtered (muroka). This sake has a fruity nose like a ginjo-style sake and has a nama (un-pasteurized) like quality. Last month in Tokyo, I happened to meet the brewer, Mr. Nobuo Shoji, at a sake tasting. He recommended serving this sake warm. (Of course, it is good chilled, too.)

SMV: +4 Acidity: 1.5
Rice: Gokyakumankoku, milled to 55%
Yeast: Utsukushimayume
Price: $24 (720ml)

 

Lynette = Kamoshibito Kuheiji Ginjo 

Very expressive, snappy, vivid and bright. Vivacious with an almost spritzy feel. Fruity and juicy with hints of tart berries.

SMV +1, acidity 1.6
50% polishing
From Chubu, Aichi

Come on in or phone and ask why these brews speak to them and of course why they will speak
