Takachiyo 59 Junmai Nama Red Sake YeastSE63

The nose on this very special sake is a brilliant blend of cranberry, apple, berry, citrus, and yeast aromas. Say hello to one of the most exciting sake in the sake world. Why so? Because this unpasteurized sake is made with a Red Yeast that is very uncommon in the industry. What is the result of using such a yeast? First take a look at that color and then remember that it is completely natural – no red food dye #2! Lively, bright, expressive, and very refreshing this sake drinks semi-sweet with a hint of tartness. Talk about flavors check out this flavor field that boasts peach and citrus tones when your eyes are closed. With your eyes open discover raspberry, strawberry, pink grapefruit, tart cherries, and cherry slushy flavors. Yes let that glorious color influence your palate. This is a very expressive brew that pounds confidence, and is a total flavor shifter, which means it’s an “experience” sake that should not be missed. WORD: Expressive WINE: Complex Beaujolais BEER: Fruity Belgians FOODS: International spice, complex cuisines, cheeses, fruit salads.
Prefecture: Niigata
Acidity: NA
