Aromas of rice and ripe red plums. Bright, mouthwatering acidity leads into a soft and chewy texture from the unfiltered rice particles. The ricey flavor is joined by gently nutty and slightly fruity flavors in the long finish.
Nigori sake is made so that some of the rice lees remain in the bottle after pressing (unfiltered). Most Nigori is sweet and creamy, and thick with the unfermented rice solids. Rihaku Nigori is a bit less chunky, but more fruity and complex than most Nigori sake.
