Izumibashi Natsu Yago Pink Kimoto Junmai Genshu Omachi (夏ヤゴ ピンク 生酛・純米原酒 雄)

Izumibashi Natsu Yago Pink Kimoto Junmai Genshu Ōmachi (夏ヤゴ ピンク 生酛・純米原酒 雄) is made of Ōmachi rice grown in Kanagawa and milled to 65%. It has a gentle aroma reminiscent of freshly pounded rice cake, shiratamako (白玉粉, sweet rice flour), and apricots. It is dry and rich in acidity with a laid-back flavour from the Kimoto-type brewing method. Recommended chilled, at room temperature, or warmed sake to around 55 degrees. Food pairings include hearty roasted beef, tuna, bonito, and Chinese chilli shrimp. It is best enjoyed in a glass of wine.

Yago (ヤゴ), the larvae of the red dragonfly that grow in rice fields in the summer, are the logo of Izumibashi Brewery.

Izumibashi Brewery was founded in 1857. It is located in the Ebina heartland, Kanagawa, amidst the illuvial plains created by the great Sagami River--an area that has long taken advantage of its natural bounty, from abundant land for rice growing to the natural water flow from Mt. Tanazawa. The brewery's name, Izumibashi, comes from the surrounding agricultural land: just north of the Izumibashi Brewery runs the Izumikawa River, which provides the rice fields with water. Combining the "Izumi" in Izumikawa and the first kanji character of our house name - Hashiba - Izumibashi Sake Brewery found its name.

In 1996, Izumibashi shifted its focus to growing sake rice and launched the Sagami Sake Rice Institute two years later in partnership with local producers to study and research sake rice growing. In 2006, Izumibashi determined to focus singularly on junmai sake. In 2016, they registered as a cultivation brewery, making sake that respects the unique characteristics of the local environment.

The "Akatonbo" (赤とんぼ), the official logo of Izumibashi, reflects the image of a dragonfly soaring over the Izumibashi Sake Brewery's rice fields. Mount Oyama, a respected landmark for the locals, is visible from the brewery and part of the mountain ranges of Tanzawa, where mineral-rich waters flow beneath. This source of hard water – rare in Japan – lends itself to sake that is clear and rich in umami, bringing out the full flavours of the dishes it's paired with.

Are you ready to experience a burst of flavours and aromas with a delicious sake? Then, you should try this amazing wine with a spicy and fruity nose that will tantalize your nostrils. You will love the sweetness and tropical notes, such as apricots, melon, and lychee. You will also feel the warmth of the alcohol that adds to the complexity. It has a medium body and a smooth texture that will glide on your tongue. You will also enjoy the refreshing acidity and the full-bodied taste that will fill your mouth. This sake has a clean and satisfying finish that will leave you wanting more. We were impressed.
