The nose on this seasonally released unpasteurized sake is a splendid collection of sugar, white grape, green apple, fresh cut grass, peppermint, and kiwi aromas. If you like it dry, zesty, and light, then this poolside brew is the Nama for you! Crisp, vivid, clean, and refreshing, it is quick on the palate with a quick finish. Look for grapefruit, crisp apple, grape, peach, young pear, mint tea, and steamed rice flavors on bright fluid with a cool mineral finish. This is the taste of fresh Yamaguchi just-pressed sake at its liveliest. WORD: Crisp WINE: Zesty Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Zesty Ales FOODS: Yakitori, salty and savory fare, grilled anything, shellfish. (2022)
The nose on this seasonally released unpasteurized sake is a unique collection of mint, mineral, melon, green apple, spring onion, and green grass aromas. Made with two rice varietals, Yamadanishiki and Hattannishiki milled to 60%, this special Junmai is a very crisp Nama with lots of tannin-like dryness and crisp flavors of young fruits. Look for green apple, grapefruit, green grape, and some astringency from young melon, young pear, and young peach flavors. There is a very nice citrus and mineral play as the fluid warms, and it’s bright, tingly, zesty, and very lively just like a good Nama should be. WORD: Crisp WINE: Tannin Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Seafood and more seafood. (2021)
