Katafune Junmai GenshuJH145

Let’s cut to the chase! This sake won a category trophy at the IWC for being the best Junmai sake in 2013 and 2015. That’s amazing and it’s for good reason. The nose on this special sake is a gentle collection of ricey aromas, steamed rice, cooked rice, and raw rice. The first sip gives it all away! Smooth, fluffy, rich, full-bodied, and damn tasty! There is a gentle rich sweetness that is rounded out by an elevated acidity that makes this brew drink chunky and vast. It is chewy and there are secret hints of citrus and honey tea among the more evident marshmallow, sweet rice, and steamed rice flavors. Hard to believe that there is a 17% alc content with all of that viscous goodness swimming around that glass that makes this sake one of “those” feel good brews that your mouth is waiting for! WORD: Trophy WINE: Fat Pinot Noir/Chewy Whites BEER: Belgian Ales FOODS: Salty and savory fare, shellfish, grilled fish, and beef.
