Ura Gasanryu Junmai "Fuka"JH11

Four Hot Words: Layered, Balanced, Rich, & Ricey

We don't currently carry the 1.8L in store. Please call our store (415) 355-9555 to place a special order.

The aroma field on this rice and water only sake is filled with steamed rice, yellow apple, caramel, wheat and cinnimon elements. This is a very drinkable Junmai that is both rich and light. How can that be? Well the flavors are rich and savory including caramel corn, butter toffee, and gentle veggie quality. But the body is semi-thick and slick and it doesn't have that "body equals flavor" feeling. Round and smooth there is a crispness in the younger bottles and a plumpness in the older brews. Creamy and a good umami push makes this sake a good food pairing partner. A smaller cup brings forth more zest and the sake relaxes as it warms. WORD: RichLight WINE: Merlot/Pinot Noir/Rich Whites BEER: Creamy Belgians FOODS: Rich flavors, salty fare, warmed dishes, things off the grill.
