SOMA NO TENGU
Cloudy Japanese sake - 100% pure rice wijn
This is an unpasteurized and undiluted sake (nama genshu) which still contains the finest part of the fermentation sediment resulting in a cloudy (nigori) colour and a very delicate rice fragrance. While being on the dry side, the texture is velvety with a creamy aftertaste. This ginjō sake combines very well with fish and shellfish. Drink cold or slightly warmed up. Do not forget to shake the bottle before serving, otherwise all the sediment will remain at the bottom of the bottle.
Uehara Shuzō was founded in 1862. The brewery has returned to traditional brewing methods and also because of its colossal wooden press looks like a true sake brewery museum. One of the few cradles of traditional sake brewing, it mainly produces slow-brew yamahai, natural yeast, slowly pressed, unpasteurised, unfiltered and undiluted sake.
