Ama no To Tokubetsu Junmai Nama SE34 "Heaven's Door"

The nose on the seasonally released unpasteurized sake is an amazing collection of green apple, rice candy, sweet rice, and Jolly Rancher aromas. Say hello to a very lush sake with a tremendous flavor field that makes each sip a sensation. Lively, fresh, vivid, and fun this brew is fleshy as fleshy sake can be. Tons of green apple flavors with sweet rice teases, and a bright chewy umami quality that sneaks to the sweet side. Green Green Green like the label. Green apple, green pear, green papaya and all in nama green. There is a ton of glucose in this nama that drinks sticky and wicked in the palate with a lovely lychee finish. Long flavor and very tasty. WORD: Green WINE: Sweet Reds/Fat Whites BEER: Fruity Ales FOODS: Salty and savory, fruit salads, cheese plates, bright fare. (2019)

(2018) The nose on this really cool nama is a gentle collection of pear, apple, sweet rice, and cereal bar aromas. Talk about one smooth nama! This unpasteurized sake is round, velvety, and almost fluffy in feeling. It’s one of those “feels good” in your palate sakes that also has very interesting rich flavors. It is unique in that it does not drink sweet despite having granny smith apple, juicy pear, and sweet rice hints that come forward as the sake warms in the glass. A larger glass brings out more action and if you dig deep enough there is a pear cobbler vein that is super yummy. WORD: Heavenly WINE: Rich reds/Juicy whites BEER: Honey Ales FOODS: Rich fare with complexity and salty/savory.

Prefecture: Akita
SMV: +4
