Shizuoka sake Tasting: Eikun Brewery-Junmai Ginjo “Daidai no Eikun”

It’s been some time since I tasted a bottle by Eikun Brewery in Yui, Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!
But this once I had the opportunity to conduct my tasting away from Home!

SN3O0532

A new wine and sake bar opened in Shizuoka City, namely La Sommeliere, and since they serve the sake in wine glasses, the tasting is easy to conduct!

SN3O0533

An orange (“daidai”) label is a bit unusual in our region, but this the official color of Shizuoka Prefecture!

SN3O0535

Rice: Bizen Omachi (Okayama Prefecture)
Rice milled down to 55%
Dryness: + 5
Acidity: 1.4
Bottled in July 2014

Clarity: Very clear
Color: Very faint golden hue
Aroma: Assertive and fruity. Dry. Pears
Body: Fluid
Tasting: Dry and fruity attack backed with pleasant jumai petillant.
Complex and elegant.
Pears, green apples, hints of apricots.
Lingers for a while with more hints of dry almonds, dark chocolate and milk coffee.

Overall: I drank this particular sake without food. It is just too elegant to let it be influenced by food.
A superb sake for tasting parties, although frankly speaking I will keep my own company when savoring it!
Would make for a splendid aperitif.
Start it chilled and let the sake warm up inside your glass to discover new facets!

Still continuing the 300 ml bottle series!

SN3O0355

This time I acquired a bottle from Doi Brewery in Kakegawa City where the brew master comes from the noto peninsula in Ishikawa prefecture!

SN3O0306

A ginjo does not come reaaly cheap!

Bottled in April 2014

Dark chocolate making a strong appearance with later sips.
marries well with food with little variation.

Overall: Heady, complex, elegant sake for the strong sake lovers.
Can be thoroughly enjoyed at any temperatures although I would recommend to start it chilled and let it warm up to discover more facets on the way.
A dangerous sake as its alcohol contents are pretty high but will hit you after a while!
Probably best enjoyed chilled as a night cap but I won’t take any responsibility! LOL

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Sanwa Brewery-Hagoromo no Mai Junmai Ginjyo

Sanwa Brewery in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City, has been producing this particular brand for quite a long time!

SN3O0293

It commemorates an old legend in Shimizu Ku, Hagoromo or Hagoromo no Mai, The Dance of the Sky Spirit Veil!

SN3O0296

Mentioning “Junmai Ginjyo” on a cap is a bit unusual in Shizuoka Prefecture!

SN3O0292

Even for a 300 ml bottle a Junmai Ginjyo is not that cheap!

Mind you, I would drink it on my own with some beautiful finger food!

Kyoto Sake Tasting: Yamamoto Honkei Brewery-Jinsei Junmai Ginjyo

I’m just spending a few days holiday in Kyoto and I have finally found a 300ml bottle produced by a Kyoto Brewery!

SN3O0157

It is brewed by Yamamoto Honkei Brewery loaced in Fushimi, Kyoto City!
Its name, “Jinsei/神聖” means “God sanctity” Lucky I’m agnostic!

SN3O0159

Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 15 degrees

Clarity: very clear
Color: Golden hue
Aroma: Dry and fruity. Grapes, brandy sherry wine
Body: fluid
Taste: Fairly dry and fruity attack backed up by only some junmai petillant.
Grapes, sherry.
Disappears fairly quickly on a drier note with accentuated hints of a dry sherry.
Gets even drier with food, whatever its kind, but changes little in taste.

Overall: Simple, solid, reliable sake conceived to accompany food.
Would be best appreciated with heavy izakaya food, although its taste very reminiscent of a dry sherry could make it a good aperitif, especially if chilled

Back to one of my favorite sake breweries in Shizuoka Prefecture:
Takashima Brewery in Numazu City!

SN3O0372

Actually I made a mistake on Facebook when I first announced I was preparing myself to drink it and Owner Brew Master Kazutaka Takashima was all around my neck. A figure of speech as he holds a judo 5th dan black belt!

Marries superbly with food.

Overall: A splendid sake to enjoy with meals. Very complex. Contributes facets to the dishes shared with it.
I personally enjoyed most at room temperature, although it would make for a splendid aperitif if chilled.
But being what I am I would drink it with cheese or chocolate!
bring it to a impress everyone!

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Hana No Mai Brewery-Junmai Nama

I still continue the 300 ml bottles!
I noticed that many of them sold in markets are nama/unpasteurized. A coincidence?

SN3O0239

Hana no Mai Brewery in Hamamatsu City must actually be the brewery using the largest variety of bottles in Shizuoka Prefecture!

SN3O0238

This particular one is junmai (no pure rice alcohol added) nama (unpasteurized)!

SN3O0241

Rice: Shizuoka-grown Yamada Nishiki 100%
Yeast: Own yeast
Rice milled down to 60%
Dryness: + 3.5
Alcohol: 14~15 degrees
Bottled on May 21st, 2014

Clarity: Very clear
Color: Transparent
Aroma: Dry, floral and fruity. Banana, green apples, pears.
Body: Fluid
Taste: Very dry and fruity attack backed up by some junmai petllant.
Dry melons, hints of pears and nuts.
Lingers only for a short while.
Gets drier with food with appearance of greens. Tends to take a back with food. Reasserts itself once away from food with appearance of oranges.
Takes on a sweet turn with cheese with the appearance of coffee beans.

Overall: In spite of its dryness, a sake conceived for young people, ladies in particular.
As it marries well with Western food, it could become a superb aperitif, although I would suggest enjoying it with cheese.
At its best slightly chilled!

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Fujinishiki Brewery: Fujinishiki “Nama” Homjozo

Cenova has an interesting set of 300 ml sake bottles and it is always a good idea to buy those.
It might not be economical but you don’t have to buy too much and you can drink it anywhere!
This time I chose a bottle by Fujinishiki Brewery in Fujinomiya City!

SN3O0235

Mind you, I think that breweries should make an effort with the design as they tend to all look alike!

SN3O0215

Cenova tries to give supplementary information that the small bottle does not allow for lack of space but it sometimes is the source of big mistakes, even in Japanese. Honjozo on top and daiginjyo under!
Oh well, it is still a good bargain!

SN3O0237

Clarity: Very clear
Color: very faint golden hue
Aroma: Assertive: Floral and fruity. Banana.
Body: Fluid
Taste: Dry and fruity attack backed up by pleasant alcohol.
Complex. Macadamia nuts, dry custard.
Disappears quickly on a deep and dry note with hints of dark chocolate and milk coffee. Late appearance by oranges, walnuts and chestnuts.
Solid and easy to drink.
Coffee beans tend to reach more importance with the third or fourth cup.
Tends to take a drier back step with food.
Turns very dry again away from food.

Overall: A sake obviously conceived to accompany food and probably at its best slightly chilled with izkaya heavy fare, and even better at a BBQ!
Solid, reliable and thoroughly enjoyable in spite of its deep dryness!

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Oomuraya Brewery: Jyuubei Junmai Nama

What I really enjoy about some breweries in Shizuoka Prefecture is that only the produce limited edition sake so much for business but for preserving history and culture.
This very brand “Jyuubei/重兵衛” has been produced by no less than four generations of brewers!

SN3O0215

Moreover, the rice is Shiuzoka-grown hyakumangoku!
Since it is a junmai/no pure alcohol blended in and nama/unpasteurized, it7s close to a very natural sake!

SN3O0217

Rice: Hyakumangoku (Shizuoka Prefecture)
Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in May 2014

Clarity: Very clear
Color: very faint golden hue
Aroma: Dry and fruity. Green apples, apricots
Body: Fluid
Taste: Very fruity and dry attack backed up with puissant junmai petillant.
Very refreshing and complex.
Apples, pears, custard, apricots.
Disappears very quickly on a dry and fruity note with hints of dark chocolate and milk coffee.
Changes little with food but for a drier note.

Overall: Very refreshing sake away from the norm for Oomuraya Brewery.
Dry, elegant and fruity.
Complex enough to draw you into the second and third cup.
To drink with Japanese izakaya fare!

Fukui Prefecture Sake Tasting: Kubota Brewery-Oni Sakuza Junmai Nama Genshu

I was offered this very bottle by an acquaintance who cannot drink any alcohol!
I couldn’t refuse and through respect for the sake and the people who made it I felt obliged to write a tasting article!

Great presentation box by Kubota Brewery in Fukui Prefecture!

The label had been commandeered by an insurance company commemorating their 25 years of service!

Bottled in may 2014

Clarity: Very clear

Body: fluid
Taste: Very dry attack backed up by puissant junami petillant and alcohol.
Complex and fruity. Very dry green apples and pears. Strong and pleasant alcohol.

Superbly marries with food.
