Fresh, smooth and citrus-y with a touch of richness.
Nate Shuzoten Sake Brewery
LaMonte Heflick – March 26, 2015:
From Nate Shuzoten Sake Brewery 蔵 in Wakayama, Japan comes the “Black Bull.” What a cool looking sake bottle! The
Seimaibuai 精米歩合 (rice polishing rate) is 50%. The SMV is +3.0 which is very close to the perceived midpoint/average (+2.0) between sweet and dry. Classified as a Junmai Ginjo 純米吟醸 with Omachi rice polished to a degree (50%) that it could be viewed as a Daiginjo 大吟醸.
16.5% alcohol with nice acidity at 1.7.
飲むやすい (easy drinking) is what comes to mind. Solid, drink-me-everyday attitude with nothing ostentatious about it. You can enjoy this one with food or just hanging out with friends. Excellent chilled. Leave the bottle out and enjoy the changing taste as it approaches room temperature. 乾杯/干杯
