Seikyo's Spring Nama release, made from lauded Omachi rice, introduces itself as a big and juicy namazake with vibrant acidity. But, behind that friendly and ample first impression, there is a tight, dry, and clean springwater-like textural core. Seikyo Omachi is a sake of contrasts: lean and mineral notes along with plush mochi flavors, or rich and toasty flavors of roasted nuts alongside flavors of fresh lime and watermelon.
Seikyo is known in the sake industry for its pioneering and innovative use of yeasts cultivated from apple flowers. These apple yeasts don't necessarily impart any significant flavor of apple on their own, however, they do generate deep expression within the sake. Seikyo's apple yeast-brewed sakes exhibit lively flavors and aromas, and overall, a unique house style that is both expressive and enigmatic. Following Seikyo's development of brewing with apple yeasts, other breweries have followed, in pursuit of unique expressions, experimenting with different natural yeasts cultivated from various fruits and flowers.
Spring Nama Notes and Special Care
Seikyo Omachi Nama is a special, limited-edition spring release. Every year, as the brewing season wraps up at the end of winter, breweries will release small amounts of their freshly brewed sake out into the world. These fresh releases are akin to the Beajolais Nouveau tradition in France. Spring Namas are largely vibrant, highly aromatic, very expressive, and sometimes intense sakes! Part of what makes them special is that by-and-large they do not get pasteurized, the way that most sake do. Pasteurization neutralizes active enzymes and microbes in the sake, making it much more reliable to transport and store. Because unpasteurized sake is alive with enzymes, it should be stored in your refrigerator until you drink it.
