Dassai 45 Nigori Junmai Daiginjo is a premium Japanese sake produced by the Asahi Shuzo Brewery, located in the Yamaguchi Prefecture of Japan. It is a unique variation of the Dassai 45 Junmai Daiginjo that incorporates the traditional Japanese brewing method of nigori, which involves leaving some of the rice sediment in the sake after it is pressed.
Junmai refers to sake that is made purely from rice, water, yeast, and koji. Daiginjo is a classification of sake that indicates it is made from highly polished rice (at least 50% of the outer layer of the rice grain is removed) and fermented at low temperatures for an extended period of time.
The sake is characterized by a rich and complex flavor profile, with a balanced sweetness and a smooth, clean finish. It has a subtle fruitiness, with notes of melon, pear, and banana, and a hint of umami that is typical of high-quality sake.
Overall, Dassai 45 Nigori Junmai Daiginjo is a unique and highly sought-after sake that is often served as a special occasion drink or as a gift to those who appreciate fine sake. It pairs well with a variety of Japanese cuisine, particularly spicy dishes and rich, flavorful foods.
