Nechi Otokoyama Tokubetsu Honjozo Nama “Yukimizake”

Tokubetsu Honjozo Nama

The nose on this amazing seasonally released unpasteurized sake is a gentle collection of citrus, mineral water, cantaloupe, mint, and grapefruit aromas. Say hello to a superb Niigata-style Nama made by a brewer who grows all of his own “estate” rice. How does light but intense sound? Clean, crisp, minty, minerally, and cool this brew literally drinks like a spring, a liquid spring that starts tight and crisp then launches into a bright flavor field with a mineral tingly finish. Sounds lively right? Look for grape, snowmelt, peach, kiwi, powder sugar, and grapefruit flavors that drink bright and dry! This is exciting sake that is refreshing and awakens the senses with an 18%ABV and a very clean mouth feel. WORD: Clean WINE: Brisk Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Shellfish, sushi, sashimi, oysters, caviar, citrus-based dishes and salads. (2022)

We are very excited to have this awesome sake back in stock, because it drinks like early spring. It is a very clean Nama that is drinks with an elegance and complexity that speaks to those who like to pull subtle flavors in their brews. Clean, light, and dry it has a lot of body for being so pristine. There are flinty and mineral snowmelt-like flavors that have layers of tangerine, grilled lemon, and lemon custard licks that are lively and clean.
