New Store Arrivals February 2005
Bingo! We are now entering that time of year "spring" when fresh nama (unpasteurized) sakes are rolling out of the tanks. The first wave of these popular "seasonal" sakes have arrived from four great breweries. Each of the four sakes was made and bottled in December! Talk about the freshest Japanese sake in America. Never before in the history of US retail sake sales have consumers been able to buy nama sake that was produced a month earlier. Three of the four are Genshu "undiluted sakes" which means that they have had no watered added to dilute the alcohol percentage that is usually the case with most sakes.
- Harushika "Shiboribana" - Junmai Ginjo Nama - Nara Prefecture - SMV: +4~+5 Acidity: 1.4 $28/bottle
- Kaika "Shiboritate" - Tokubetsu Junmai Nama Genshu - Tochigi Prefecture - SMV: +1~+2 Acidity: 1.4~1.6 $28/bottle
- Komikokoro "Toukagen Shiboritate" - Tokubetsu Junmai Nama Genshu - Okayama Prefecture - SMV: -11.5 Acidity: 1.4 (Made with Peach Yeast) $28/bottle
- Koshinohomare "Shiboritate" - Junmai Nama Genshu - SMV: +5 Acidity: 1.75 $28/bottle
If you do not live in the Bay Area do not despair! These namas need refrigeration for keeping, but because of the higher alcohol percentage and their amazing freshness they will travel well. Meaning we can ship these sakes to the fortunate 11 States and you need not worry about damaging them. This is another example of how True Sake is leading the charge with the freshest and most timely sakes in Japan now being offered at extremely reasonable prices right in your back yard. Of course they are available for a limited time only.
