Denshin Natsu Junmai Daiginjo Nama SE15 "Summer"

The nose on this seasonally released summer unpasteurized sake is a wonderful collection of cherry, grape, lemon, and other citrus aromas. This is a smooth, fun, and fruity brew. With a choice plumpness and layers of flavors that balance with a tender acidity. Look for honey, apple, sweet pears, and lemon honey tea flavors that drink bright and chewy. Semi-thick, fleshy, and full. This drinks like a Junmai Daiginjo on steroids that makes everything larger and more robust, but still fun and not cloying. And there aren’t many Junmai Daiginjo Nama out there so this is a treat. Another great seasonal sake from a great brewery that knows how to capture sunshine in the bottle. WORD: Sunny WINE: Fat reds/Plump whites BEER: Fat Belgian Ales FOODS: International spicy fare, American sushi, fruit and cheese plates. (2019)

The nose on this very fresh unpasteurized sake is an interesting collection of sweet tomato relish, pear, and cantaloupe aromas. Say hello to a Nama Junmai Daiginjo! There are not a lot of those out there so it is important to taste one while you can. Why? Because now you are dealing with elegant nama zake. Typically namas tend to be heavy and zesty and very lively, this summer brew is slippery and soft with very classy silky qualities that speak to those who like very refined sakes. It is a true Daiginjo experience with layers of ripe flavors and gentle feelings. Look for hints of pear, melon, and rice krispie treats in a fluid that does better in a larger wine-like glass. WORD: Elegant WINE: Beaujolais/velvety whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: Sunny summer picnic dishes, shellfish, oysters. (2018)
