Product Details

Named Snow Maiden in homage to Japan's most famous koi, "Hanako", which lived 226 years in the icy waters at the foot of Japan's Mt. Ontake. Junmai This is fairly thick and chewy nigori (cloudy sake), but it is still surprisingly dry. The aromas are bright and fresh and they show a lovely ricey and fruity combination. In the mouth, this sake has solid weight and gives the same flavors of fresh fruit and creamy fresh rice that your nose told you about. The finish has a pleasant astringency and is nicely mellow, beckoning you for another mouthful. You will rarely taste a classier nigori at this price, and this may be the ultimate food-friendly nigori. Bright and fresh with a lovely ricey and fruity combination. Honeydew melon and ripe banana with a bright finish. Full bodied. Pair with Crab rangoon, spiced pork spare ribs,spicy tuna poke. 30% of rice grain polished away Nihonshu-do: 6.5 Alcohol: 14.9% Acidity: 1.6
