Founded in 1870, Tedorigawa makes beautiful Sake. Here we have two quite different styles, showcasing their craft. I encourage you to watch the movie about them as you enjoy their Sake. Get both for $58 or see the mixed case in my bio.
Tedorigawa Kinka Namazake Daiginjo Arabashiri
Pours clear. The nose is classic Daiginjo but also truffles amid the honeydew. The palate features very nice and classic honeydew with a hint of grapefruit pith. Texture reminds me of melon juice. The finish introduces pleasing white chocolate on a lengthy, pleasant finish. Drink this one chilled in a straight walled wine glass with smoked or grilled foods.
Tedorigawa “Silver Mountain” Yamahai Junmai
Pours with a hint of yellow as many Yamahai do. The warmer fermentation increases oxidation increasing color and flavor. My daughter picks up a hint of lime on the subtle nose. Me: Trumpet mushroom. The palate is filled with more fresh umami of white mushrooms and it’s relatively thick texture suggests cashew. With some air and food, I find pretty white grape and honeysuckle from the number 7 yeast and ginjo level polish (60%). The texture carries the finish through liquid marble, lingering beautifully. You really need to try this at room temperature and with salty foods in order to unlock the savory depth.
