An old saying says that “the best rice in the east is Kame no O and the best in the west is Asahi”. This sake was bottled in 2018 and has been kept in our cold room. The body has become rounder and fuller while retains its mildly sparkling style.
Tasting Notes: This sake should be enjoyed in a wine glass. It starts with a passion fruit like nose and mild sweetness. The sake finishes with a green apple like taste and dry finish with mild acidity.
Food pairing: Most dishes would go with this mellow and well-balanced sake. However, we prefer dishes deep fried dishes, such as spring rolls and tempura.
Rikyubai is named after a cherry tree in the garden of the brewery. It is the traditional label consumed around the brewery for decades.
