Harushika Shiboribana Junmai Ginjo Nama SE03 "Spring Deer"

Four Hot Words: Bright, Fruity, Clean, & Drinkable

The nose on this just released unpasteurized sake is a very mild collection of pear, raisin, and steamed rice aromas. This by far is the most gentle nama sake of these early spring releases. It is a “living” sake that drinks very much like a Ginjo that is smooth, clean, and easy. Easy freshness is a pretty cool concept then add in gentle flavors like Asian Apple Pear, young strawberry, melon, and apple and you get a fresh glass of easy elegance. This is a great starter nama to understand how rice and water can taste like so much more. WORD: Elegant WINE: Soft Reds/Clean Whites BEER: Light Beer FOODS: Clean cuisines, grilled fare, shellfish, sashimi, sushi (2020)

The nose on this spring released seasonal sake is a subtle collection of white grapes, tangerine, and sweet rice aromas. Say hello to a very full and ripe Nama that has lots of Ginjo qualities and flavors. Look for pink grapefruit, white grape, and blood orange flavors on a fluid that is fat and chewy that has a little tingle, which means it’s still living! Very vivid with a very proud plumpness this brew has lots of glucose-like feelings with a dry finish. Fleshy and fun, this “Spring Deer” is a full-bodied Nama with bright citrus fruit tones on a juicy fluid that jumps. WORD: Citrus WINE: Fat Reds/Plump Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: International spicy fare, grilled fare, fruit plates. (2019)
