Masumi Arabashiri Junmai Ginjo Nama NA08 "First Run"

Four Hot Words: Fresh, Fruity, Robust, & Citrus

The nose on one of the most famous nama-zakes that comes to the US is a mild collection of grapefruit, citrus, lemongrass, and grape aromas. First Run ’14 is a milder and gentler nama that has a very controlled and Ginjo-like presence. Not as brash as in year’s past, this version drinks very gently and smooth with all of the citrus flavor that this brew is famous for. An old reliable friend in the unpasteurized sake segment that has a freshness that seasonally released sake should have. First Run is always in first place! WORD: Clean WINE: Beaujolais BEER: Beefy Ales FOODS: International spicy fare, sushi, sashimi, fruit salads. (2014)

Prefecture: Nagano
SMV: -1.0
Acidity: 1.9
