Otokoyama Shiboritate Tokubetsu Junmai Nama Genshu "Man's Mountain"
The nose on this spring released seasonal unpasteurized sake is a lively collection of pear, apple, melon, mango, grape, and snow melt aromas. Talk about a crowd pleaser! This Nama is lively, fun, and just a great sake to share with friends or enjoy alone in a mid-sized glass. Light, fruity, smooth, tingly this brew drinks with a lot of pleasing fruit tones but has a dry and somewhat crisp finish. It’s almost the perfect warm sunny day sake with a picnic or pool in the background. Look for kiwi, melon, pear, apple, and other fresh fruit tones and take note of a gentle mineral vein that travels the length of the sip. Just a superb fruit forward sake that drinks dry and clean, and is a pleasure to so many different sake palates. WORD: Fruity WINE: Bright Reds/Fruity Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, shellfish, picnic and poolside light and fresh cuisines. (2021)
