Starting with super high quality Hyogo grown Yamadanishiki, this sake features yeast no.77 which is very high in malic acid production. Look for aromas of green apple skin and complex acidity.
Serve chilled in a white wine glass as an aperitif or pair with strong cheeses, confit, schnitzel, fried foods.
The Afuri series from Kikkawa Jozo is brewed with water from a rain-fed spring at the foot of Mount Afuri in Kanagawa. It is naturally harder than typical sake brewing water at 150ppm in equal parts Calcium and Magnesium. These nutrients allow for extremely low temperature fermentation to develop extra complexity. Founded in 1912, Kikkawa once made rich and dry sake. The 7th generation chief brewer Masanori Mizuno took over in 2012 changing focus to a complex, robust and aromatic style balanced by ancient acid production techniques.
