Tatenokawa Junmai Daiginjo 33 Kyuryu 720ml
Tatenokawa was the first Sake Brewery in Yamagata who decided to brew exclusively Junmai Daiginjo class sake, and hope to continue to do so while providing their high quality merchandise at an affordable price. Nearly all of the rice they use to brew is locally grown Miyama Nishiki and Dewasansan. In 2014, ANA International picked this sake for their First Class and Business Class sake.
Class: Junmai Daiginjo
Rice-Polishing Ratio: 33%
Brewery Location: Yamagata
Food Pairings: Sushi, Sashimi, Meat
Tasting Notes: In order to maximize Yamagata's originally developed Dewasansan Sake Rice's true potential, Tatenokawa polished it down to 33% of the original grain size, opening the brew up to sweetness, umami, and acidity. Nose is ripe fruit, and the first sip is as soft and light as silk. As it slides over your tongue the flavor expands and blossoms, so that by the finish your mouth and heart both feel equally beautiful.
