Tamagawa Junmai Ginjo Muroka Nama Genshu BY 2022 "Ice Breaker"
The nose on this seasonally released unpasteurized sake is a cool collection of melon, pineapple, Muscat, honey, rock sugar, nougat, toffee, and white chocolate aromas. We love Ice Breaker! And True Sake is the only retail store outside of Japan to have the 1.8L bottles. This year's Breaker is soft, smooth, rich, round, velvety, fresh, and lush. Talk about a flavor bomb. Look for ripe melon, pear, milk chocolate, rock sugar, nougat, honeycomb, and cashews on a chewy ride that is loaded with umami goodness, plus a quick finish for all of those flavors. Master Brewer Philip Harper says that it gets so hot in Japan during the summer, that he recommends adding an ice cube to your glass. WORD: Smooth WINE: Soft Reds/Fat Whites BEER: Creamy Belgians FOODS: Anything! Great with tacos, burgers, pizza, fried chicken, and summer fare. (2023)
