This time of the year witnesses the appearance of a lot of so-called limited brews.
Oomuraya Brewery in Shimada City is particularly active in that area.
Oomuraya Brewery: Fuuka Junmai
Rice: Homare Fuji 100% (Shizuoka Prefecture)
Rice milled down to 60%
Amino acids: 1.2
Pasteurized inside the bottle
Limited to 300 bottles
Bottled in June 2008
Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Almost transparent
Aroma: Light, dry, fruity. Pineapple, melon
Taste: Soft at first, alcohol appearing on back of the palate. Short tail.
Coffee beans, bitter choclate, pineapple, melon.
Almost no jumai tingle. Almonds appearing later
Overall: a very elusive discreet sake for a junmai.
Although it holds itself perfectly with food, it would probably be best appreciated for its own sake (LOL).
Elegant. Pity it is limited to only 300 bottles.
Drier than expected. Call for second sip.
