The nose on this brew that is made on “Sake Island” has a superb nose filled with mango, papaya, gardenia, pear, and sweet rice aromas.  This brewery makes private label sake for the Nobu Sushi chain of restaurants. YK35 is made with Yamadanishiki brewing rice milled to 35%, and the famous yeast known as Association #9. Say hello to a very prominent Daiginjo that is smooth, semi-viscous, rich, round and has a very unique Sado Island snowmelt mineral quick finish. Look for melon, apple, pear, mango, grape, blueberry, and raisin flavors that bounce on a tingle of acidity. There is a little astringency (Shibumi) that sneaks through the palate on a silky and slick fluid that has a touch of vanilla and finishes like biting a snowball. This brew is built for a white wine glass and drinks more balanced as the sake warms a little in the bowl. WORD: Snowmelt WINE: Sharp Reds/Flinty Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, shellfish, oysters, grilled fish and chicken, cheese plates.
