DEN Junmai NamaNA31

DEN Batch #7

The nose on this next edition of our locally made craft sake is a gentle collection of white grapes, blueberries, peaches, and white pepper aromas. In a word Batch #7 rocks! This is by far my favorite Batch in Den’s short but clever history. It is a more “full” version with full-bodied flavors and a full-bodied feeling. The mouth feel in particular is exceptional. It is chewy and viscous but not necessarily fat per se. In one sense, it is fleshy but it’s also bright and lively. So you do the math! A mid-sized glass works the best with this brew as it captures the acidity and flavors in perfect balance. A wine glass thins out the brew and pushes the acidity a little bit. A small cup highlights all of the fruit tones of pear and fleshy apple. There is a peek-a-boo astringency that works well on the slightly thicker and solid fluid that has so much wonderful texture. What a great batch of sake! WORD: Chewy WINE: Deep Reds / Fat Whites BEER: Beefy Belgians FOODS: Grilled fare, salty and savory, International spicy fare, shellfish.
Prefecture: Oakland, California
SMV: +4.5
Acidity: 2.0

Note: Because namas are unpasteurized, they must be kept chilled. We will only ship out these types of sake under your own risk. We highly recommend store pick-up or local delivery only which you can select when you go to checkout. All sales are final for Nama items once they leave our store.
