Tentaka Tokubetsu Junmai "Hawk In The Heavens"
A go-to sake for barbeque, this rustic, high acid sake is a great representation of traditional Junmai style that you would find in Izakayas throughout Japan. The brewery name, Tentaka, translates to “hawk in the heavens,” a prosperous Japanese symbol that is thought to bring good fortune to the brewery.
Tasting Note :
Dry and crisp, the flavors are dominated by mixed nuts, fresh cut green grass and other earthier flavors. Very pleasing for those who want fresh sake flavor, but more complexity beyond the fermented fruit flavors.
Food Pairing :
Pairs well with hearty grains, mushrooms, beef, lamb, and BBQ sauce.
Additional Information :
SMV: +1.5 (Dry)
Polish rate: 55%
