Nechi Otokoyama Tokubetsu Honjozo Nama “Yukimizake”SE41

Four Hot Words: Smooth, Yeasty, Plump, & Chewy

The nose on this unpasteurized sake that is made with “Estate” brewing rice, which means that they grow their own, is a very fresh collection of cucumber, powder sugar, rice candy, cocoa, and mineral aromas. Damn! This sake tastes like the bottle looks - light, cool, and minerally. What an awesome Nama. It is so light, bright, and refreshing but is loaded with really tasty flavors such as white grape, honeydew melon, blueberry, and tons of minerals like snowball melt. There is also a very unique vein of citrus tones such as tangerine, and grapefruit, with an added powder sugar touch. A fantastic drinking brew that has a 1.8 acidity level, and has an 18% alcohol level, which you cannot even tell that they’re there, so we will call it the “Crazy 8’s.” WORD: Snowmelt WINE: Light reds/Mineral Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Oysters, shellfish, sashimi, poached fish. (2019)


The nose on this unpasteurized seasonal sake is an array of yeasty, floral, and sugary aromas. Say hello to a sake that could very well be a breakfast brew as there are layers of berry fruit tones and a wonderful vein of honey. Plump, viscous, and chewy the legs on this sake are long and so too is the time in the palate. There is a peek-a-boo 18% alcohol content, but the smoothness and the balance of the brew disguises the elevated alcohol percentage. Using their own Gohyakumangoku made in the famous Nechi Valley you will be wowed by the richness of the rice and will revel in the layers of fruit forward flavors. WORD: Honey WINE: Sweet reds/Fat whites BEER: Sweet Ales FOODS: Great for large flavors including international spice. (2018)

Prefecture: Niigata
SMV: +4
Acidity: 1.8
