Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Morimoto Brewery-Premium Yuzuki 2013, Junmai Ginjo, Tokubetsu Gentei Hibaihin


This is the season when Morimoto Brewery in Kikugawa City comes up with very limited brews as shown in the definition “Tokubetsu Gentei Hibaihin”/”Specila Limited For Reserved Clients”!


Incidentally “Yuzuki” is the tradtional Japanese name for “November”!


Rice milled down to 55%
Alcohol: 15 degrees
Bottled in November 2013

Clarity: Very clear
Color: Light golden hue
Aroma: Fruity: Custard, macadamia nuts
Body: Fluid, slightly sirupy
Taste: Assertive, dry and fruity attack backed by pleasant alcohol and puissant junmai petillant.
Complex. Dry almonds, persimmons, macadamia nuts, custard.
Disappears quickly.
Makes for a drier turn with food. Junmai petillant still strong with food. In spite of its normal content alcohol stays strong and pleasant all the time.

Overall: Very &”macho” sake by Shizuoka standards, but typical of Morimoto Brewery which always bound to concoct something different.
A sake to be enjoyed by dry but complex sake lovers.
Would marry n\magnificently with any food as very close to a well-rounded dry wine!
