Sake Selects - Team True Sake Select Monthly Brews February 2009

Posted by admin in 2009, February, Newsletter, Sake Selects

sake selects feb 2009Welcome to "True Selects" - 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.

Miwa's Pick: 

Shimeharitsuru "Jun"

From Niigata Prefecture
Junmai Ginjo
SMV: +5 / Acidity: 1.5 / Rice: Gohyakumankoku, milled to 50% $32/720ml

Elegant, expansive, and clean. Smooth texture with bright fruity tone.

 Lynette's Pick: 

Rihaku "Wandering Poet"

Junmai Ginjo
Shimane Prefecture
SMV +3, Acidity 1.6
Rice: Yamada Nishiki

In response to several of our customers requests, I am bringing the Wandering Poet back to the store as my sake selection of the month.
As a SAKE BONUS Miwa is running a Hiyaoroshi Nama Special for those who cannot get enough of the very tasty Fall/Winter brews: The deal is buy one get one for free! WOW What a deal!!!!
