Natural wines – Wine Scouts Pedro says “I have just landed back from Japan, so this weekend I will open a lovely, natural sake, the Terada Honke Ginjo. This sake is wildly different from many, with a medium-light body showing ripe fruit and a pickled plums and refreshing citrus character. It has the right balance between umami, fruit and acidity. Is is organic and unfiltered, and has been produced using the Bodaimoto method, which is known as a ‘pre-modern’ method. Established in 1673, Terada Honke have been brewing continuously for over 340 years. They are purveyors of only natural yeast brewing, working almost exclusively with traditional Kimoto and Yamahai starter methods. Come and taste!”
