Hmmmm...dried prunes, touch of currant and ripe red berries with a sublime undercurrent of grassy earth and forest-y shit. Ate some Hokkaido uni with it. Would eat a whole goddamn tray with a bottle....wait sounds like my weekend plan! — 20 days ago
Deep ruby. Savoury, lots of tannin and structure, but beautifully balanced. No fatigue. Spicy, smoky, dried fruit character, but there are no dried fruit used. Tightly knit, good acidity. Still needs years to see its prime. 13,200JPY /bottle. — 10 months ago
Kawatsuru Oseto Tokubetsu Junmai from Kagawa Prefecture. Female Toji (head brewer) at the kura.
Crane of Paradise. 55% milling wth a blend of Oseto and Yamadanishiki rice.
Tokubetsu means “special “ in Japanese.
Dry and bold with a creamy touch. Ripe Asian pear, dried persimmon, cinnamon and a bit of nougat chocolate on the finish.
We had it with sashimi of B.C. Spot Prawns and Hokkaido scallops.
Very enjoyable and well priced at $30 CDN
