True Sake Selects - Team True Sake Select Monthly Brews of Note May 2009

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

sake selects may 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: 

Yukikage "Snow Shadow"

From Niigata Prefecture / Kinshihai Brewery
Tokubetsu Junmai
SMV: +4 / Acidity: 1.3 / Amino Acids: 1.0 / Yeast: S-3
Rice: Gohyakumangoku & Koshi-Ibuki milled to 58%
$23 / 720ml

Soft, light-bodied with a flavorful finish. Great-value, food- friendly Junmai. Enjoy!

Lynette's Pick: 

Tokun Shariku "Samurai" 

From Chiba prefecture 1825.
Organic Junmai Ginjo.
SMV: +2 Acidity: 1.3

Sure some sakes can taste wine-like but no wines can taste like Tokun Shariku, with layers and layers of rice flavors. A sake drinker's dream come true as an eager roasted flavor tinged with a mild coffee essence is layered amongst deep rich savory flavors.
