Harushika Shiboribana Junmai Ginjo Nama SE03 "Spring Deer"

Four Hot Words: Bright, Fruity, Clean, & Drinkable

The nose on this year’s Harushika Nama is a splendid collection of blueberry, green apple, honeydew, and bubble gum elements. Ha! Usually this sake drinks very much like a ginjo each season, but this year there is a lot more pop! Good stuff as drinking a nama should be like drinking a fresh and semi-brash version of its pasteurized self. Far less controlled  and far more crisp look for young pear and apple tones on a juicy fluid that ends up on the dry side. And on a very interesting front this brew explodes in the front of the palate – the immediate palate, which is unique and fun as the crisp flow then leaves the back of the throat. Flavor up front with a dry crisp finish. You can’t ask more for a living brew than that! WORD: Crisp WINE: Dry Reds/Bright Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Think international spice, salty and savory dishes. (2016)
