Ryusei: Junmai Sake Crafted in a Serene Environment
Ryusei White Label Junmai Ginjo is an elegant sake that conjures a beautiful flavor coming from the Yamadanishiki rice polished to 60% of its original size. Recommended to enjoy chilled.
Ryusei Nagomi Tokubetsu Junmai is an ideal table sake that can be enjoyed with a variety of dishes, as well as a wide temperature range from chilled to warmed to hot.
Made from Yamadanishiki rice, known as the best rice for sake, Ryusei White Label boasts a hint of Muscat and a melon-like aroma with a clean texture and sharp finish. From the rice it also has a distinct umami that lingers for awhile, making it a great match with sushi and sashimi. On the other hand, Ryusei Nagomi is made from locally grown Hattannishiki rice that tends to produce a sweeter and richer flavor. The abundant umami complements food very well while its acidity cleanses the palate, naturally accompanying meals such as tempura and sashimi.
