- Nigori Saké
- Japan > Ibaraki Prefecture
- White, Dry, Medium-Bodied, Earthy, Soft
- Match the richness of a dry, unfiltered sake with richly-styled dishes.
- Try a coconut and cashew chicken curry,
- panko-crust, soft shell crabsin a ginger-ponzu sauce
- or chicken satay and a Thai cucumber salad.
Nose: Medium-Light Intensity, youthful, earthy, floral, leesy
Mouth: Light-Medium Bodied, dry, low acidity, light-moderate intensity, short-medium finish, pear, melon, butter
- Because it’s made from rice, saké has much lower acidity than wine. Nigori (unfiltered) saké has even lower acidity and an almost dairy-like smoothness. Chill lightly before serving. Gently upend the bottle and swirl the rice sediment until the saké has an even, milky consistency. Yum!
