New Sake Tasting: Daishichi Yukishibori Nigori
Fri, Jul 21, 2017 6:00 PM @ Sake Nomi
Please join us this weekend, July 21-23, as we introduce a fantastic new "cloudy" nigorizake, Daishichi Yukishibori Nigori.
The first ever kimoto-style sake introduced to the domestic Japanese market in 1994, Yukishibori is lightly sparkling and has aromas of pears and white peaches. It is light, clean, and faintly mineral on the palate.
Johnnie’s tasting notes declare enthusiastically, “Here is your champagne for oysters!”
From Daishichi's Facebook page: "Daishichi went against the trend at the time of producing thick and sweet nigori and sparkling sake and designed Yukishibori Nigorizake to be lightly cloudy and more dry so that it works well not only as aperitif but also a versatile partner to food. Featuring fruit-like elegant sweetness and soft bubbles as well as the typical umami and acidity of kimoto sake, Yukishibori Nigorizake matches superbly with such foods as sautéed meat, spicy dishes, tempura and bitter spring vegetables."
