Kubota Hekiju Junmai Daiginjo “100 Ostentatious-nesses”DG44

Four Hot Words: Clean, Dry, Crisp, & Cutting

This Daiginjo, which we call a Ginjo in the store, is the perfect example of a Niigata style sake known as tanrei karakuchi or light and dry. Hekijyu has a nutmeg and pear nose. This Ginjo is as smooth and clean as they come, and subtle flavors of ripe pears and grapes pervade the middle mouth. The ending is anything but, as you will not remember swallowing. This is an ultra-popular sake in Japan and should be tasted by all sake connoisseurs. WORD: Stellar WINE: Dry crisp whites BEER: Light Ales FOODS: Seafood pate, ankimo, cold lobster, seared albacore, and white fish sashimi.
