Dakuryu Junmai Daiginjo Usu Nigori

340,00 kr

濁流 純 米 大 吟 醸 濁り   

This Premium Nigori, Junmai Daiginjo from Tatenokawa is a far cry from the popular, sweet Nigori sake that widely circulates outside Japan. A coarse filter was used after the pressing (Shibori) to allow ultra fine rice-sediment to pass through, into the bottle. The bottling process happens very quickly to insure that the sake retains the vibrant qualities of "sake from the tank". This includes a very pleasant light spritz of residual carbonation. On the palate, a quick burst of grapefruit-like acidity is followed by small, clear notes of Vermouth. This effervescent Usu Nigori with its multilayered fruit acidity and big splashes of amino acids is by all accounts a readymade cocktail in the glass!.  

Served chilled as an aperitif, or with creamy desserts such as rich Goma ice cream.   

Refrigerate at all times, since this sake is Nama ((unpasteurized)).
