Horan Shuzo Nigori Morning Frost Sake
The white color comes from it's main ingredient, rice. Normal clear sake is usually filtered to remove grain solids left behind after the fermentation process. However, nigori sake remains unfiltered, resulting in a far cloudier drink, giving a rich, creamy, outstanding flavor and smooth texture. The creaminess is completely natural, and is fruitier than clear style sakes. The nose exudes tropical aromas of coconut and pineapple along with vanilla. "Morning Frost" nigori is not as rice-y as most, and can be enjoyed as an aperitif. It goes well with vegetable dishes including tofu and creamy sauce dishes. Also, the surprisingly smooth texture of nigori makes it an excellent contrast for spicy food.
