Takachiyo 59 Morinokumasan Junmai Ginjo Muroka Nama Genshu SE51 "Chapter Five"

The nose on the this sake, which is part of a series that can only be found outside of Japan at True Sake, has an extremely interesting collection of koji rice, melon, banana bread, and white grape aromas. No. 5 is smooth, round, rich, and has a little background zesty kick to it. It is bright, but not brash with much more balance and control in the mouth-feel. Look for flavors such as Devil’s Food Cake, fruit compote, coconut, and lots of lime and citrus. The strength in this brew rests in the richness of the flavors and the tingle of a unique “Margarita” play. The Morinokumasan rice varietal (which is a first at TS) makes this version of Chapters drink rich and round with a solid balance for a crazy nama! WORD: Rich WINE: Deep Reds/Full-Bodied Whites BEER: Creamy Belgians FOODS: More for drinking exploration, but would handle salty and savory grill fare.
Prefecture: Niigata
SMV: +1
Acidity: 1.6
