Murai Family Nigori Genshu "Peach River"
This unfiltered or "Nigori" sake has a plump nose filled with sweet cream, grape, honey and yogurt elements. At 19.9% alcohol one would expect a massive punch of a sake, but this creamy and fruity brew is smooth a round for such a robust dance partner. Look for hints of berry, grape, and vanilla tones that are carried on a velvety and expansive fluid. Not overtly sweet and a tremendous finish for a 20% milky madman! Think milky and silky. WORD: Smooth WINE: Fruity reds/Chewy whites BEER: Hefeweizen FOODS: Big flavored and spicy dishes, creamy and cheesy pasta, desserts.
