Junmai Sparkling Nigori
SMV: -55 / Acidity: 2.3
This bottle-fermented sparking sake has a pleasant aroma of citrus, peach and yogurt. Unique scent of koji rice is also present. When you sip, silky tinny bubbles tickle your pallet, and you find a nice balance of rice sweetness and lemon zest bitterness. The sake has a nice clean finish and leaves no sugary sweetness. Light and refreshing, it is great afternoon sip on Indian summer day. $6/250ml
