Sirakawa-go Pure Rice Sparkling Nigori-zake
New entry into the Shirakawa-go series.
This unrefined sake goes through secondary fermentation in a bottle.
This sparkling Nigori-zake was created as part of the Pure Rice Shirakawa-go series. After years of research, Miwa Shuzo achieved a Pure Rice Sparkling Nigori-zake with carbonation derived from secondary fermentation in a bottle, which gives a clean taste after the sweetness of the rice and the richness of Nigori-zake. The process of “secondary fermentation in a bottle” is equivalent to the Champagne Method for wine. The naturally-produced fine bubbles create a fresh and pleasant texture. As the alcohol content is low at 11%, this product can be recommended for those who do not usually drink sake and those who are beginners with Nigori-zake. This Sparkling Nigori-zake won a gold medal at The Fine SAKE Awards Japan 2013.
