Shichi Hon Yari Junmai Nama Genshu SE22 "The Seven Spearsmen"

The nose on this seasonally released unpasteurized sake is a great collection of citrus, aloe, green grasses, herbal, and steamed rice aromas. My tasting notes read, “A very Nama Nama.” Huh? It seems of late, many so-called Nama sake drink more like pasteurized Ginjo sake, and that 3-D lively effect is missing. Not in this brew! No way. Spritzy, tingly, fritzy, effervescent, and lively this sake drinks exactly as it would if you pulled a cup out of the fermentation tank and that’s pretty cool. Zippy and fresh look for bright flavors such as peach, plum, young bamboo, mineral, mint, and yeasty steamed koji rice. If you want the fresh sake experience this brew gets you as close as you can get in your glass and palate. This year’s Shichi Hon Yari is a great drinking experience. WORD: Lively WINE: Beaujolais/Bright Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: International spice, salty and savory fare, seasoned boiled shrimp, Gumbos, fruit salads. (2020)

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.
