Daimon Shizuka Junmai Ginjo
The nose on this super, food friendly brew, is a mild collection of cocoa, steamed rice, cotton, caramel, toast and butterscotch aromas. Welcome home Daimon Shuzo with your Shizuka that was the “Welcome Sake” at SAKE DAY 2019. It’s such a good feeling to get another Osaka sake back in the store. Osaka is known for food, and this brew is wonderful to pair with Japanese and American comfort foods like ramen, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, and even tacos from south of the border. Dry, clean, smooth, this ricey brew made with Yamadanishiki from Hyogo drinks great chilled and at room temperature. As the fluid warms, look for dried apple, toast, crackers, wheat, and a hint of cocoa flavors. There is a lot of umami in this brew that gets richer as it warms. WORD: Osaka WINE: Rich Reds/Dry Whites BEER: Dry Ales FOODS: comfort foods from all over the globe.
