Masumi KAYA Brown 茅色 Junmai 300ml

KAYA (Brown) is named for the brown and gold color of rice fields during the autumn harvest.

Relatively light polishing preserves the savory depth of our local Nagano sake rice. Mild aromas of brown rice and cream lead to sweet & savory umami lifted by clean acidity.

Food pairing suggestions

Pairs broadly with Japanese standards‚ grilled fish, teriyaki anything, nabe hotpots‚ and robust Western dishes‚ roast vegetables & meats, dairy & cheese.

This next sake really excites us. We had the pleasure of tasting it a few years ago when we travelled (remember that?) to Suwa in Nagano. Its fresh taste with the effervescence was really good. We are so glad we could get some to bring to Australia.
