Clean and balanced on the one hand, with a caress of wild honey on the other, “Iki na Onna” is a classy, confident sake brewed in very limited amounts for the Association of Lady Sake Retailers.
Yoshida Sake Brewery
In recent years popular taste in Japan has moved away from the “light and dry” style towards more full-flavored sakes. At the center of this movement have been the bold, assertive sakes of the Hokuriku region, made in the Noto Toji brewing style. Within this tradition, Tedorigawa stands apart for its elegance and finesse. The brewery uses Kanazawa Yeast, which has a mild aroma profile with low acidity, to produce sakes that have richness and complexity, yet are perfectly smooth and balanced.
Rice variety: Yamadanishiki
Yeast: House Yeast (Kanazawa Lineage)
Brewing method: Sokujo
With its clean bite and svelte mouthfeel, “Iki na Onna” evokes a crisp Chardonnay. Serve it chilled with flank steak, charcoal-grilled fish or a hearty Caesar salad.
