Polishing Ratio: 33%
Tatenokawa 33 is a spectacular sake. Delicious, fruity, rich and round - this sake is exceptionally well crafted and compelling. Using the famous, local Dewasansan rice and highly polishing it to 33% allows an elegant sake to emerge, and the brewers at Tatenokawa then tease out rich, fruity aromas and flavours of green melon, pineapple, watermelon and subtle stoned fruits like apricot and prune.
Gently pressed and bottled young, to retain it’s youthful character, Tatenokawa 33 is medium-bodied with superbly balanced acidity, a rich impact and clean finish.
You can enjoy this wonderful sake on its own but Tatenokawa 33 also offers superb pairing options. Ceviche, tartare, salads, meat robata, game, foie gras, sashimi, ceviche, oysters, mature cheeses and pates all are delicious. Tatenokawa is the first Junmai Daiginjo-only brewery in Yamagata.
