True Selects - Miwa and Lynette Select Monthly Brews August 2008

Welcome to the latest new "big thing" at True Sake! "True Selects" represents featured sakes that are selected and championed by Miwa and Lynette - our two resident sake studs. As we can only stock so many different brands of sake - think limited space - this effort is a way to offer sakes that we wouldn't usually carry. They will select by price-point, uniqueness, availability, and other factors that make these selections unusual for the store.

For August:

Miwa:

Jokigen Junmai Ginjo This sake has a deep aroma of ripe fruits, like honeydew melon, peach, and banana. The taste offers a great balance of brightness and ripeness with a very gentle texture. The label is minimalist and cool. From Yamagata / SMV: +4 / Acidity: 1.6 / Rice: Oyamanishiki milled to 55% / $29 (720ml)

Lynette:

Oni No Shitaburui / Honjozo / Gohyakumangoku rice / SMV +15 / Acidity: 1.3 / 500ml

Come on in or phone and ask why these brews speak to them and of course why they will speak.
