Urakasumi Junmai "Misty Bay"
This Junmai fits perfectly into the category of medium-dry. It has a soft nose of rice and dried leaves, with a pale yellow sheen. Different temperatures produce different flavors. At room temperature it has a very nice entrance of chocolate wisps and a savory aftertaste. Chilled, this Junmai brings forth a fruitier feel of soft pear and mellow mango. It is disguised very well for a Junmai. Subtle yet elusive, and all the while it sits remarkably well on the palate. This sake epitomizes a perfectly balanced sake. WORD: Clever WINE: Sauvignon Blanc BEER: Soft Ales FOODS: Salty and savory fare, shrimp dumplings, soba noodles, sautéed filet of sole, spaghetti with basil.
