Sake description :

This rare Soubei Wase is a native variety of sake rice that is a parent rice of "Kameno O" and called phantom sake rice due to its weakness to pesticide. Over three years, ancient rice from 150 years ago was revived, and after three more years of refining the brewing process, Soube Wase was finally born.

It is from the local Shonai native rice, which is used only by Tatenokawa and holds the prideful name of Soube Wase. Soube Wase, crafted from rice untouched by varietal improvements for 150 years, stands out from the rest.

It offers a subtle steamed rice aroma, a complex and profound taste, and the inherent umami of the rice. Soube Wase, truly born from rice, perfectly accompanies various cuisines, enhancing your dining experience. With aging, it develops a deeper mellowness and reveals a range of flavors through temperature variations. Indulge in the exquisite Soube Wase, tailored to your preferences, and experience its exceptional richness.

「惣兵衛早生(そうべえわせ)」は、 "幻の酒米"と称される「亀の尾(かめのお)」の親にあたる山形県庄内地方の在来品種で、 現在では亀の尾以上に希少な存在となっております。


「Shield 惣兵衛早生」は、甘美な香りとしなやかな酸味が奥深く重なり、独創性が感じられる味わいに仕上がっております。

新しい酒米の品種開発も大事だが、それらの源流となる昔の酒米の品種も大事にして残すべきだ。そんな考えから私は、地元の米の品種の復活を、2017年の秋口から模索し始めた。庄内町発祥の 「亀の尾(かめのお)」 については、歴史のある酒米だが、同町の鯉川酒造さんを筆頭に多くの蔵元さんで取り組まれており、それとは違う品種もないだろうかと探した結果、たどり着いたのが、「亀の尾」の親にあたる 「惣兵衛早生(そうべえわせ)」 だった。


2019BYの計画には、親の「惣兵衛早生」だけでなく、子の「亀の尾」のお酒の醸造も組み込んだ。この2種類の米で醸した酒を、日本酒 楯野川の新シリーズ 「Shield(シールド)」 として発売。第1弾「Shield 亀の尾」は2020年3月に、第2弾「Shield 惣兵衛早生」は同年10月頃に。
