Asahi Shuzo (Yamaguchi), Dassai 50 Sparkling Nigori Junmai Daiginjo Sake 360mL
A truly unique Sake from one of Japan's top breweries.
The nose is made up of rose water, cream, apple, and melon aromas. Fruity, light, buoyant, bouncy, and soft this unfiltered sake drinks like it is floating. Unlike most Nigoris that assault the palate with milky sweetness on initial attack, the Dassai Sparkling Nigori is soft, airy, and feels like it swooshes through the palate. Look for hints of fruit tones like cherries, pears, apples, grapes, and a touch of light whipping cream.
