Known to rely on nature's rhythms, Terada Honke collaborates with Patagonia Provisions for this bottle of kimoto junmai. Marvel at the golden color of this sake while enjoying aromas of mango pudding, enoki mushrooms, and lemon curd. We get flavor notes of cedar, burdock root while detecting acidity in the midpalate, and finishing dry.
The earthy flavors pair well with sauteed greens topped with pepper flakes. The tart acidity complemented fattier fish like salmon and black cod.
Terada Honke was established over 340 years ago and are currently lead by 24th generation Toji Masaru Terada. They focus on extremely old-school brewing conventions; they brew using traditional yamahai and kimoto methods, sing while agitating the mash, rely solely on naturally occuring microorganisms which live at the brewery, and use as little machinery as possible, all while using pesticide-free rice. They even have a cafe on site at their brewery where they use their sake kasu and other byproducts to craft dishes and teach their guests about the magic of fermentation. True to Terada Honke form, this sake is a nama muroka genshu (unpastuerized, unfiltered, undiluted).
