Shirataki Shuzo Sake with Caviar

Shirataki Shuzo Sake with Siberian Sturgeon CaviarShirataki Shuzo is a Sake producer in Echigo Yuzawa in Nigata Perfecture. With Sake, the water is a key ingredient. The Shirataki Shuzo brewery is located n a area that receives a lot of snow. This snow in the spring time turns into a mineral laden source of water for the Sake production. From the mountain tops, the water flows through a seam of coal which acts a as a filter.and positively affects the taste and quality of the water.

Shirataki Shuzo Sake and Caviar

From left to right we have tasted:

Namazake no Jozen Mizuno Gotoshi

Uonuma Noujun Junmai

Nigori no Jozen Mizuno Gotoshi Junmai Ginjo

They are different from each other and all very good The Namazaka is unpasteurized and is lively and fruit filled. The Uonuma has rice that is only polished to 80%. This seems to give the Sake a richness to it. The Noori is unfiltered and is rich but with a dry finish.

We brought along some Siberian Sturgeon caviar sustainably farmed in Italy.for a tasting.

Shirataki Shuzo Sakes makes  very nice Caviar and Sake pairings.

Macari Vineyards LIFEFORCE Sauvignon Blanc with Caviar

2016 Macari Sauvignon blanc with Siberian Sturgeon Caviar

The Lady likes her New York State wines and the wines from Macari Vineyards are on that list.

May the LIFEFORCE be with you and in your glass. We are talking about the Macari Vineyards LIFEFORCE Sauvignon Blanc wine.

During the wine making process there are no oak barrels or stainless steel tanks used but there are concrete eggs. This 100% Sauvignon Blanc wine ferments in large egg shaped cement vessels. The use of the cement eggs doesn’t change the flavors of the fruit like oak can but gives the wine more body and more integration.

The wine offers light grassy and tropical notes. On the palate, it is fresh and smooth along with grapefruit pith and tropical undertones. The wine finishes with the refreshing acidity of a Life Force.
