Souden is produced using exceptional Yamada Nishiki sake brewing rice locally cultivated in the Fukuoka Prefecture. The yamahai brewing method is used.
Yamahai Sake: The yamahai brewing method entails an extended fermentation at low temperature for 2 months. This is a labor-intensive method of making sake. The unique combination of the yamahai method with a sake rice that typically possesses an elevated aromatic profile results in a fruit forward nose with a notably amplified acidity that complements meat-centric and richly flavored cuisine.
Tasting Notes: Lemons and jasmine create a very pretty balance between floral and fruity on the nose. Tart and tangy in the mouth with bright citrus notes, the body is rounded out by white peach and highlights of lime zest.
