Gokyo Hiyaoroshi Junmai NamazumeSE30

The nose on this seasonally released sake that was made for fall cuisines is a mild collection of cream, cereal, minerals, and banana bread aromas. Lots of fall draft
sakes are heavy and rich, but Gokyo is different in that it drinks electric, bright, light and very fresh. It’s almost “rich lite” with tasty rice elements and an overall fluffy quality that billows through the palate. Smooth and grainy it has hidden tastes of honey coated nuts, butter, and banana muffin. As the fluid warms behold a nice French toast quality that shimmers in the glass and allows one to taste the water of the brew as well. WORD: Smokey WINE: Sharp Reds/Bright Whites BEER: Dry Ales FOODS: Seasonal seafood, smoked oysters, smoked fish and fowl, and cheeseboard. (2018)

Hiyaoroshi sake are made in the winter and aged and released the next fall to pair well with autumn cuisine. This unique brew has a gentle nose of citrus, leather, butter, and cocoa aromas. Say hello to the most complex of our fall draft sake this season. This brew is would appeal to red wine drinkers who enjoy a tannin-like drinking experience with some astringency and flavors galore. Look for dried fruit, green apple, and young pear flavors that drink fat and frisky in the palate. The unique semi-sour flavor screams complexity with a vibrant tingle that is cherished by food pairing specialists. A larger glass lets all of the elements blend together for a great seasonally fresh flavor. WORD: Complex WINE: Tannin reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Sour ales FOODS: Seafood stews, pasta, hearty soups(2017)
