Tatenokawa Phoenix Junmai DaiginjoDG154

The nose on this special sake that proceeds go to the Japanese Red Cross is a gentle collection of cherry, mango, berry, pear, and apricot aromas. Smooth, round, silky, clean, and balanced this brew is very user friendly and good example of the qualities found in a “premium” sake. A mid-sized glass brings out the best flavor profiles of cooked pear, apple, and mineral notes. It is a very slippery sake, which means you can really taste the special brewing water, and there is a nice rice-neutrality that is neither too fruity or too dry. Is this sake restrained or just a very unpretentious Junmai Daiginjo? Either way it drinks great and is for a great cause. WORD: Slippery WINE: Dry Reds/Clean Whites BEER: Light ales FOODS: Clean cuisine. Steamed fish, tofu dishes, and gentle veggies.
