This sake was named “Best Nigori Sake” by the Wall Street Journal in 2006, and for good reason. The light-to-medium body delivers a splash of fruit flavors. Because it’s unfiltered it has an opaque, creamy color and thicker texture, which help it pair easily with spicy, savory, and intensely flavored meals. The sweetness is all natural from the famed Yamada Nishiki rice, and it’s been skillfully crafted in a way that sets it apart from its peers.
Yaegaki is brewed in Hyogo Prefecture in the Kinki region.
