As I said before, with the advent of Mount Fuji and Matsubara Beach being chosen as the New UNESCO World Culture Heritage, the sake breweries have been scrambling to put on sale brews commemorating the event!
Fujinishiki Brewery located in Fujinomiya City at the foot of Mount Fuji, came up with a beautiful label representing Mount Fuji in different seasons!
The small label on the bottle neck states the recent registration and election of Mount Fuji and Matsubara Beach as a new UNESCO World Cultural Heritage!
Rice milled down to 65 degrees
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in June 2013
Clarity: Very clear
Color: Very faint golden hue
Aroma: Fruity. Coffee beans, nuts, loquats.
Body: fluid, slightly syrupy
Taste: Sweetish attack backed up with assertive junmai petillant.
Fruity and complex.
Nuts, chestnuts, loquats, apricots, notes of coffee beans.
Linger for a while before disappearing on a drier note.
Tends to mellow with food.
Marries beautifully with food, although it tends to take a back step.
Overall: A typical sake from Fujinishiki Brewery conceived to marry beautifully with food, especially izakaya food, although it tends to make itself discreet then.
Eminently drinkable on its own at all temperatures.
Take it to great BBQ outdoors or as a present!
