Hawk in the Heavens
Brewed with water from the area's natural underground springs which goes through triple filtration to remove any unwanted natural debris. Locally adored, Tentaka Kuni only releases 20% of its brew out of Tochigi prefecture.
With slightly yeasty notes and roasted walnut aromas, this well rounded sake has a rich mouthfeel. Dry and crisp, the flavors are dominated by mixed nuts, fresh cut green grass and other earthier flavors. Medium-bodied, the finish is lengthy and dry; a perfect food companion.
87 Points, Stephen Tanzers International Wine Cellar, 2007
"Pale, yellow-tinged color. Smoky aromas of pumpkin and squash, with hints of grilled bread, fennel and menthol. Gives a subtly sweet impression but retains good freshness. Not particularly rich, but the melting finish is clean and persistent. Made from a spring that has been famous for more than 400 years."
