Sake brewers in Japan make a special sake in the spring and release it in the fall to pair well with the wonderful autumn flavors in Japan. These sakes are called Hiyaoroshi and this particular version is very unique because it is “pole rammed” or uses the “Kimoto” method to produce it! The nose on this single pasteurized “draft” sake has hints of steamed rice, wet wood rice paddle, and actually smells like a sake brewery in the early morning. Say hello to a dry and clean sake that explores all the corners of a brew that is crisp, tight, and compact. It is a very quick through the palate sake that speaks to red wine drinkers who like a lot of tannins in their juice. Look for hints of dried rice, chestnuts, cedar, wheat and rice krispy flavors on a fluid that expands as it warms. Not only dry, but this brew is slick like wet water and feels layered in the palate like a martini. WORD: Dry WINE: Crisp reds/ tight whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Autumn Flavors! (2015)

Prefecture: Hokkaido
SMV: +1
