Born Junmai Daiginjo Muroka Nama Genshu
The nose on this unpasteurized Daiginjo (not many of these) is made up of rose pedals, cooked banana, leather, tropical fruit, and steamy night elements. This is a really plump and viscous Nama that is both smooth and soft. There are a ton of ripe flavors to choose from honeydew melon wrapped in prosciutto, to a sweet fruit compote, to honeycomb. Juicy and fruity and so darn lively - so much flavor and so little back! The overall celebration of this sake is the every allusive "umami" quality, which is so present that they put a sticker on the bottle that says "umami." Rolling, fruity and soft like a sweet avocado! WORD: Umami WINE: Nouveau Beaujolais BEER: Sweet ales FOODS: White fish in a rich soy sauce, avocado salad, grilled oily fish, tofu.
