This Gozenshu 9 (Nine) is ideal for “Tempura Chikuwa Cheese”

Gozenshu 9 (Nine)

This is a rustic, raw and earthy Sake with malt and cereal on the nose. The flavours are smoothly presented, well-balanced, rich and deep. When paired with Tempura Chikuwa Cheese, this Sake will cleanse the palate and the richness of the rice flavour allows the cheese to become well-balance in texture.

 


Sandra Advice!
“Chikuwa is the perfect deep fried entree. Tempura Chikuwa Cheese is a fusion style of classic crispy entree in Japanese cuisines. The fusion style is actually adding extra cheese for the cheesy texture and cheesy melted filled in the palate to make it really yummy.”
