Noguchi Naohiko Honjozo Muroka Nama GenshuNA45

The nose on this unpasteurized Honjozo that is made using Gohyakumangoku milled to 60% is an amazing collection of melon, creamy fruit, grape, berry, honey, sweet nuts, butterscotch, and cream cheese aromas. If you drink sake long enough, eventually you find those brews that blow your socks off. Count this sake as one of your Bucket-List-brews that takes “flavorful” sake to the next frontier. Oh my gosh! Talk about controlled madness. Talk about controlled brashness. The entire world of flavors is in this brew, which could be crazy, but the balance of this Nama Honjozo is superb and this makes the whole thing dance perfectly. Look for hints of persimmon, melon, vanilla, citrus, cinnamon, crisp apples, grapes, pineapple, forest floor, pomegranate, dark chocolate filled with raspberry, dried fruit, and pear compote flavors. Wow! In a nutshell this sake is a flavor shifter along the lines of a shape shifter. It changes with every sip, but never let’s you get lost. Who said Honjozo sake is boring? Not a chance here! WORD: Flavor Shifter WINE: Complex Reds/Deep Whites BEER: Stouts FOODS: The kitchen sink!
Prefecture: Ishikawa
Acidity: N/A

Note: Because namas are unpasteurized, they must be kept chilled. We will only ship out these types of sake under your own risk. We highly recommend store pick-up or local delivery only which you can select when you go to checkout. All sales are final for Nama items once they leave our store.
