The “Beau Zone Layer” – Manzairaku Hakusan
From Ishikawa Prefecture. Junmai Daiginjo, SMV: +3 Acidity: 1.3
Are you ready for a stealth sake? Are you ready for liquid complexity? Are you ready for a “like water” drinking experience that gives new meaning to a pristine sake? I think you are! Say hello to a Junmai Daiginjo made in a prefecture known for big full-bodied brews with attitude and funk. This brewery knows how to bring the funk as well, but this special beast is a dance in elegance and sake wonderment. Talk about a professionally clean sake that is slippery and lush. It’s so clean that you can easily miss the mystery and layers of subtle complexity in each sip. Hakusan is one of those head scratching brews that is so nuanced that it’s simply enjoyable. But when you close your eyes and think about the sip it is so much more. And you would not think it’s a food pairing sake, but it’s a beast! It truly pairs well with large flavors like your Thanksgiving turkey. Give it a try!
