Niizawa Hakurakusei Junmai Daiginjo Sake, Hokkaido, Japan

Country: Japan

Colour / Style: Sake

Featured in: Episode 9

As selected by: Niki Nakayama

I’m a bit proud of this sake, as over lunch a few years ago I convinced brewer Iwao Niizawa to sell his sake in the UK. This is one for lovers of Sauvignon Blanc and New World Chardonnay with fruitiness and aromatic lift. Don’t match with Sashimi. Think of herb-dotted salads and grilled vegetable and fish. Match the elegant texture as much as the aromas and flavours.
