SAKE SWEETNESS

DESCRIPTION

In "Koi NISHIKIGOI", the grade and rice is kept a secret – this is to allow one's sense of smell and taste to be surprised, appreciating its flavour and aroma without sight and knowledge of it.

Good intensity and umami. Lactic acidity, refreshing with slight heat on the finish. Nice tropical fruits and rice aromas. Well balanced with umami and sweetness. It would be good to try it warm.

SOMMELIER'S NOTES

The beauty within is equally matched by the beauty without as the bottle that houses Nishikigoi Saké is artfully crafted by Yamaharu Glass Co. The distinctive red-on-white pattern that mimics the Kohaku variety of Koi has been the recipient of numerous design awards, making each unique bottle a collector’s item.
