Attention nama junmai lovers! This is a delicious, balanced brew with a velvety body. While floral on the nose with hints of spice, it has an ume-like tartness and a dry ending. The kurabito (sake brewers) at Asamai also grow their own rice – this selection is an homage to the toji (master brewer) who passed last month suddenly while working in their rice field. He made sakes to specifically support a meal, and in our case, it was a simple margherita pizza with anchovies. Drink chilled.
Because this is a nama-nama (unpasteurized sake), this sake is only available for in store pick up (zip codes within 20 miles of our store).
