Sake Selects - Team True Sake Select Monthly Brews February 2009
Welcome 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.
From Niigata Prefecture
SMV: +5 / Acidity: 1.5 / Rice: Gohyakumankoku, milled to 50% $32/720ml
Elegant, expansive, and clean. Smooth texture with bright fruity tone.
Rihaku "Wandering Poet"
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!!!!
