Kurosawa Nigori "Black Creek"
This is not your prototypical nigori as it is more misty than a white rush, and that is what makes this sake so elegant. The nose on the semi-cloudy Ginjo nigori that is milled to 50% is a light collection of creamcycle, star fruit, citrus, and cream aromas. Talk about a suave and very elegant slightly misty sake, this brew is a gateway sake to get nigori drinkers to gravitate to filtered sakes. It is very easy on the palate with layers of gentle flavors such as melon, star fruit, cream, and hint of citrus. And as nigoris go this delicate brew is semi-dry and that is a rarity in the unfiltered category. The importer says that she likes to slightly warm it too! WORD: Elegant WINE: Soft reds/dry whites BEER: Gentle ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, very clean cuisines.
