Rihaku Omachi Junmai Ginjo Nama Genshu SE37 "Origin of Purity"

The nose on this seasonally released “Nama” or unpasteurized (typically sake is pasteurized twice as a preservation technique) is a mild collection of steamed rice, rich earth tones, and wax candy aromas. Hey Nama drinkers! It’s time to get a little funky with a raw sake made with the very rich and complex rice vareital known as Omachi! Fat, large, and chewy this brew drinks rich and thick. It’s an adventure in a glass with loads of flavors pushing off the solid and balanced fluid. Plump and gooey look for green apple tartness and hint of sourness found in peaches. But wait there’s more! There is also a tangy theme that comes forth as the fluid warms and together this all works because of the balance and solidity of the sake. It is unique. It is complex. And it would speak to wine drinkers who like stories with their rich red wines. This is a frisky bold nama that isn’t fruity per se, but keep an eye out for dried fruit tones that boarder on astringency “Shibumi” expressions in each sip. WORD: Rich WINE: Tannin Reds/ Huge Whites BEER: Stouts FOODS: This baby works it all. Throw complexity at it and enjoy the pairing.  
Prefecture: Shimane
