Tedorigawa Arabashiri Kinka Daiginjo Nama "Gold Blossom"
The nose on this "arabashiri" or "Not pressed" sake is a tantalizing collection of floral, lemon, green apple and lemon custard tones. Talk about a "feel fun sake"! Kinka always is a treat to taste as each year the sake gets better and more confident in its structure and delivery. Always very flavorful with hints of grapes, blueberries, pears and a dash of cucumber that come front and center with a peek-a-boo showing of honey tea. This is a very well balanced sake that gets more fruity in a small glass and more zesty in a large one. WORD: Flavorful WINE: Zesty reds/crisp whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Think seasonally fresh fare, sushi, sashimi, clean and bright cuisines that lean towards international spicy fare.
