Tasting notes - Junmai Daiginjo
“If it isn’t dry, it ain’t sake.” These were the words, more or less, of the founder of this sake. Tentaka sake is indeed generally dry. But nowadays, it has a nice character and solid foundation of flavour as well. A very light and fruity nose that almost jumps out at you, but with a mature and confident mellowness..
This is not certified by Japanese body as organic but is made with organic rice and in organic way in certified organic shuzo. Please consider this as a 'natural sake'.
Best with more delicate dishes such as grilled scallops or vegetables, sashimi, any food that is light with herbs. Salads using lettuce, cabbage (not mayo) or English spinach. Excellent with cheeses.
