Oze x Rosé
Class: Junmai Daiginjo
Rice-Polishing Ratio: 50%
Brewery Location: Gunma
Food Pairings: Served primarily as an aperitif or digestif with cheese, foie gras, sushi, etc.
Tasting Notes: A lovely rose-colored sake that exists within a sphere of balance between sweet and tart, and has a flavor that resembles wild strawberries. Brewed with the exceedingly difficult-to-use red yeast, it has been said that if a Junmai Daiginjo is the most difficult grade of sake to brew, this Rose Junmai Daiginjo was 10 times as difficult, so many brewers are unable to work with it. Keep refrigerated.
Profile: Ryujin Shuzo's underground water is very soft and feminine, lending to their brewers the power to draw out the hidden flavors in their rice. Their aim is to create flavorful, mellow, high quality sake that warms the heart upon drinking.
They like to combine their traditional skills and methods with the brewer's heart. To this end, they work hard to improve their skills every day to work towards the next challenge, and brew excellent beer in the off season.
