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

Posted by Beau Timken in 2010, July, Newsletter, Sake Selects
Miwa & Lynette Miwa's Pick:

Ura Gassanryu "Fuuga" Junmai

From Yamagata Prefecture. SMV: 0 / Acidity: 1.4 / Rice: Miyamanishiki / Yeast: Yamagata

Layers of rice, fruitiness and umami (savory-ness) are well balance in this muroka (non-charcoal filtered) namazume (single pasteurized) Junmai. Great texture and flavors.

Lynette's Pick:

Denemon Junmai

From Niigata Prefecture. SMV: +1 / Acidity: 1.3 720ml $27

Denemon is a very smooth, easy drinking Junmai. Although overall it drinks fairly clean, it has subtle earthy hints and soft caramel tones. It does very well cold, still smooth and refreshing with hints of rice sweetness but drinks drier that you would expect. Some may pick up mild floral tones amongst the savoriness of the sake. Like many Junmais, this one also drinks great at room temperature and warm.
