This sake has all the bells and whistles of a yamahai worth its salt: bright, tangy acidity, creamy texture, and great with strong-flavored foods. When warmed up, we got notes of canteloupe, clover-honey sweetness, tart yogurt, and a satisfying, enveloping texture. Tart and rich in all the right ways while not going overboard in sweetness or funk. Enjoy this with cured meats and funky cheeses, or with a buttery ribeye steak.
Former Umami Mart blog contributor Washi (and now owner of Oakland's Soba Ichi), describes this sake as as a, "A chardonnay with umami."
We are very pleased to be carrying the Tedorigawa brand at our shop for the first time ever! Yoshida Sake Brewing's reputation for pristine water and local rice precede them; this century-and-a-half old family owned brewery was the feature of 2015 documentary film 'The Birth of Sake.'
