Detailed tasting notes: Awazake is a beautiful Nigori, a cloudy sake, rich and really fruity. Its nose is sweet, pleasant, with notes of ripe fruit, pear, pineapple, banana and grape. Tropical flavours, what could be more normal for a sake made by Japan's southernmost brewer! The texture in the mouth is rich and dense, punctuated by lactic notes, and marked with a beautiful acidity. It gives good overall balance and lot of lightness. The finish is perfectly balanced, rich while remaining lively and fresh.
Tasting advice: to be enjoyed fresh, alone or during the meal on selected agreements. With seafood, grilled white fish. At the end of a meal on citrus desserts, with chocolate and exotic fruits.
In addition to traditional fruity or drier styles, sakes can be "special" depending on the technique the brewer has chosen to use. An illustration here with a "Nigori" sake, a cloudy or coarsly filtered sake, with Awazake Nigori.
