Jozen Mizuno Gotoshi Nigori Junmai Ginjo
Inviting aromas of mint, marshmallow and Asian pear pull you into this drink. Surprisingly dry, this Nigori (cloudy)
style of sake has a rich chewy texture. The intriguing mid palate features mint, white chocolate, and tart cherries.
The finish belies our expectations with an elegant softness of minerals that settles in a dry finish.
ABOUT SHIRATAKI SHUZO:
Shirataki Brewery is located in the heart of the Japanese Alps called “Snow Country” in the Niigata Prefecture.
Each spring the snowpack melts providing an abundance of clear natural spring water. This water runs through a
coal seam providing a natural filtration process that accentuates the taste and quality of the water. This very soft
water is the secret behind the very light, elegant, pretty style of sake made at Shirataki. The town of Echigo
Yuzawa is home to “Koshi Ikari” a famous high-quality table and sake rice brand in Japan, as well as “Koshi Ibuki,
which is used in their light elegant style sake and “Koshi Tanrei” which is used in their sake with richer fuller flavor.
This Nigori pairs with Roast Duck, dry rub Ribs, full flavored country pate, and fruit and nut desserts of light
Mildly ripe Coulommier and Brie, or a raw milk mild cheddar.
