As its namesake implies, this is a very nice light and dry sake. Made using rice grown in the central valley of California this sake is a highlight of the collaboration between Japanese Americans and traditional sake brewers. A portion of the proceeds go towards helping endangered butterfly conservation efforts.
“More than just sake, Uka is a continuation of strengthening relationships with Japan and remembering our roots,” says Hayato Yusa of Uka Sake.
This sake first introduces itself with intense aromas of pear, green apple, and anise. On the palate you get refreshing honeysuckle with mineral notes and a pleasant long finish which makes this sake perfect chilled alongside mushrooms sauteed in butter or roasted chicken.
