Nigori is unfiltered sake, with the rice lees left in to create a creamier texture. Naturally cloudy, slightly sweet and meant to be drank very cold. The rice is polished down to 65%, this is a high quality sake that avoids the starchiness of less costly productions.
From the mouth of the importer (Winebow):
"The story of Akita Seishu began in 1865, when founder Jushiro Ito converted a 150 year old thatc hed roof estate into the Dewatsuru sake brewery. Five generations later, the brewery is still run by the Ito family. President Tatsuru Ito works closely with his son Yohei to bring Dewatsuru's award-wining sake to consumers in Japan and throughout the world. The brewery's philosophy is that, " Good harmony makes good sake." Akita Seishu values everything local and strives for a harmonious relationship between man and nature. The Dewatsuru brewery is even certified to produc e organic sake, one of only a few such breweries in all of Japan. Although, working together with nature is not always easy in this frigid region in northern Japan, the harsh winter conditions are ideal for brewing sake and contribute to the distinct, regional flavor profiles of Dewatsuru sake. Bright and clear as the natural spring from which its water is sourced, this sake displays up-front aromas of green apples and sweet melons with hints of citrus fruits and sweet almonds. On the palate, it is delicate, dry, and creamy with a pleasant, clean finish."
