Mei’s New Store Arrivals: Ohyama, Ninki, and Kenshin

New Arrivals August 2015

Ohyama Tokubetsu Junmai Nama
From Yamagata Prefecture
SMV: +2.5 Acidity: 1.5
$36/720ml

Drinking great this year! Balanced with fresh flavors on a fun and bouncy Nama flow. This is a drink it now brew for the full and tasty effect of a seasonally released sake.

Ninki Ichi Sparkling Junmai Ginjo "Natural"
From Fukushima Prefecture
SMV: -70 Acidity: 6.5
$15/300ml

Another crisp and fun sparkling sake for the portflio! This brew is crisp and bright and does so well in a Champaign flute. Very well balanced and basically a clever party in the glass!

Kenshin Junmai"Spirits of Samurai"
From Yamanashi Prefecture
SMV: +4 Acidity: 1.8
$12/300ml

We love this new Junmai, because it speaks on a lot of different levels. It has a very traditional Junmai taste, but it is far smoother and rich than traditional Junmais. And take a look at that acidity level! What is that countering? Lots of wonderfully rich flavors for a well-balanced brew. Good at three temperatures.
