Shirakawago Sasanigori "Bamboo Leaf"
Rice: Hida Homare milled to 55% This simple Ginjo nigori is a creamy coconut slide wrapped in a milky mouth with a great finish, fairly non-descript and clean. With a nose of rose petals and raisins, this nigori has a smooth texture and a silky finish of vanilla, coconut and cream. The viscosity is a bit thin, but the abundance of rice flavorings makes for a clean finish. This nigori is semi-sweet, thin and slippery. WORD: Coconut. WINE: Semi-dry whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: Bar snacks.
