Minakata Junmai "Extra Dry"
The nose on this “Extremely Dry” sake is a collection of grains, steamed rice, and crushed leaves. It’s about time that we added a true really dry sake to the mix. With an SMV rounded up to 16 you are looking at a bone dry brew that doesn't make the mistake of sacrificing flavor to get that high dry. It is ricey and tight with a real compact drinking feel. It’s light and goes down easy, but speaks to those who like a little heat in their palate. Does well chilled, room temperature and lightly warmed look out! A perfect brew to throw at your fatty foods ensemble to wash away the greasy oils and preserve the flavor. WORD: Extra Dry WINE: Tannin Reds/Tight Whites BEER: Crisp snappy ales FOODS: Salty and savory, fried everything.
