Nabeshima Junmai Ginjo "Yamadanishiki"
The nose on this sake is a great collection of apple, rock sugar, papaya, green fig, peach, and spring flower aromas. Say hello to a tasty sake that drinks fruity, fresh, and fun. Made with Yamadanishiki rice – the best in the business – this brew is spritzy, tingly, fleshy, juicy, and bright on the palate. Look for peach, grape, powder sugar, green apple, honeydew, lemon grass, and lime flavors with a clean and quick finish. Wine drinkers will rejoice at the shibumi presence of this sake that drinks with astringency and plump acidity. And for those who cannot get unpasteurized sakes shipped to their homes, this sake drinks very much like a nama. Great chilled in a wine glass. WORD: Spritzy WINE: Fruity Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Fruity Ales FOODS: Sushi counter, crab, oysters, white fish sashimi in ponzu.
