Rihaku Nigori Sake Dreamy Clouds....$13.99 / 300mlDreamy Clouds is quite special because its milling rate of 41% technically qualifies it as Junmai Ginjo grade - a rare quality level for a nigori (cloudy) sake. It presents an opportunity to move Nigori drinkers forward to new styles of sake.
GRADE: Tokubetsu Junmai Nigori ***
TASTING NOTES: 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.
FOOD PAIRING: Pair with spicy noodle dishes, risotto, or white fish.
