Tsukasabotan Yamayuzu Shibori Junmai "Mountain Yuzu"
The nose on this gentle Yuzushu (Citrus sake) is a splendid collection of lemon peel, honey, fresh lemonade, elderflower, and sugar aromas. Talk about a gentle and elegant Yuzushu. This brew from Kochi Prefecture – known for their dry coiffable sake – is exactly that in Yuzu format. Light, semi-dry, clean, and very well balanced, this low alcohol brew 8% ABV is refreshing, softer, and more quiet than loud in-your face Yuzu sake. Look for citrus, shiso, honey, tangerine, and herbaceous flavors that taste like summer in a bottle. The strength of this Yuzushu is in the gentle nature of the fluid as it passes through the palate. It has refreshing citrus qualities, but it’s not a citrus bomb. Lovely Yuzushu that is packaged well and drinks like it looks, classy and cool. WORD: Gentle FOODS: Citrus based dishes, poolside fare, and fruit plates.
