True Sake Selects - Team True Sake Selects Monthly Brews of Note October 2009
| Ura Gassanryu Koka
From Yamagata. Honzojo Muroka Namazume
SMV: +2 / Acidity: 1.0
A brand new arrival from beloved Yamagata, this single-pasteurized (namazume) honjozo drinks like a ginjo. This sake offers a gentle aroma of fruit and vanilla with a sassy boozy kick. This brew drinks easy and water-like and might be a great companion for rich raw fish, like salmon sashimi. After a sip or two, a refreshing flavor of this sake disappears gracefully, leaving a trace of coolness on your palette. $23/720ml
| Daishichi Kimoto Junmai "Shizenshu"
From Fukushima. Kimoto Junmai
SMV: + 2 / Acidity: 1.5
This organic rice brew is from the famous brewery that makes a majority of their sakes using the kimoto method (poll rammed sake). True Sake used to carry this full-bodied smooth Junmai 5 years ago - Now it's back! $36/720ml. If you like kimoto-type sakes then come taste the original.
