Tasting:This Nigori is quite special because its milling rate of 41% technically qualifies it as Junmai Ginjo grade sake- a rare quality level for a nigori (cloudy) sake. Sake Facts Quality Grade: Tokubetsu Junmai Seimaibuai: 58% (42% of rice grain polished away) Rice: Gohyakumangoku Yeast: #9 Nihonshu-do: 3 Alcohol: 15.5% Acidity: 1.6 Tasting Notes/Food Pairing: The nose is led by steamed rice, fresh red plums, and suggestions of roasted peanuts. Bright and lean in the mouth, unlike many Nigori, and the impact is chewy with sweet rice flavors intermingling with the nutty and slightly fruity characteristics of the sake.
