Brewed with the very interesting Goriki rice varietal, this sake has a nose filled with chocolate covered cherries, caramel and a nice earthiness. Delicious in a white wine glass.
Goriki rice is only found in this region, and is a multi layered character that has unique flavours in every angle. Goriki rice is very difficult to cultivate; in fact, its cultivation was once abandoned because of those difficulties. Now its use has been revived. Using this unique type of rice combined with local water makes for a truly one-of-a-kind local nihonshu that brings with it the heart of the region.Look for blueberry and other crisp fruit notes.
This is not exactly a sweet and sour sake, but there is plenty of flavour movement as the sake warms in the glass and brings out an impressive amount of umami. Complex and elegant, a truly enjoyable sake.
