Shizuoka Sake Tasting: One-Cup Series 15: Fujimasa Brewery-Genkotsu

genkotsu-1

The other day I had the surprise to discover a One Cup sake by Fujimasa Brewery which is located in Fujinomiya City, a long way from Shizuoka City!

genkotsu-2

Interesting and very macho name: Genkotsu, that is “The Fist”!

genkotsu-3

Advertised a “dry sake”!

genkotsu-4

Old-fashioned cap!
Incidentally this is a honjozo!

Rice: various from Shizuoka Prefecture
Rice milled down to 68%
Dryness: + 6
Acidity: 1.1
Yeast: No 6
Alcohol: 15.5 degrees
Bottled in December 2016

Clarity: very clear
Color: light golden hue
Aroma: dry, smoky, oak, plums
Body: fluid
Taste: very dry and smoky attack.
Dry plums.
Pleasantly warms back of the palate.
Lingers for a while before departing on a softer note of dry oranges and more plums.
Tends to turn even drier and smokier with food.
Late appearance of chestnuts and bitter chocolate.

Overall: as expected a sake fit for men’s taste although I don’t doubt many members of the so-called weak gender will appreciate its uncompromising dryness and smoky oaken notes!
Great with a hot meal!
Suggested pairings: yakitori, oden, stews, cheese.

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Fujinishiki Brewery-Fujinishiki Junmai Genshu Nama “Juku” (conducted at la Sommeliere in Shizuoka City)

SN3O0709
SN3O0709

I don’t mind repeating it all the time but I prefer conducting sake tastings in the right environment but not many places are propitious for that exercise or willing to help.
But La Sommeliere in Miyuki Cho, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City is certainly becoming a habit as not only I can conduct my tasting in the best conditions possible but also exchange views at the same time!

SN3O0706
SN3O0706

This time I tasted another brew by Fujinishiki Brewery in Fujinomiya City!
It is a Junmai Genshu Nama called “Juku/塾/Matured”!

SN3O0708
SN3O0708

Rice: Nihonbare (Shiga Prefecture)
Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 18~19 degrees
Dryness: + 6
Acidity: 1.8
Bottled in October 2015

SN3O0711
SN3O0711

Clarity: very clear
Color: golden hue, very similar to a white wine
Aroma: assertive, dry and fruity.
Muscat, raisins, custard, musk melon, hints of peach, ripe figs and chestnuts
Body: slightly sirupy
Taste: dry and mellow attack at first backed only with a little junmai petillant with some welcome acidity.
Complex: custard, peach, figs, chestnuts.
Lingers for while warming up the back of the palate before departing on a strong dark chocolate appearance.
Very easy to drink in spite of its high alcohol contents.

Overall: a very intriguing sake you can enjoy as a high class mellow white wine!
Will splendidly marry with practically any food.
Stays complex all the way through and showing ever-changing facets probably due to the unusual rice and the high alcohol contents.
Very unusual for a Shizuoka Prefecture sake.
A must-try not only as a sake but as a high class beverage for a whole meal.
You will overwhelm your guests!

Recommended pairings: ebi shumai, oden, cheese, chawanmushi, yakitori, terrines and pate.

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Fuji-Takasago Brewery-“Karakuchi”

SN3O0114

As a general rule I always take notes when drinking sake in a Restaurant or bar in Shizuoka Prefecture (and very often elsewhere!) as some of the same sake are impossible to find elsewhere because they are brewed on order.
I found this particular one at Uogashi Sushi restaurant inside the ASTY Mall in Shizuoka City JR Station!

SN3O0115

It is a sake just called “Karakuchi/Dry” by Fuji-Takasago in Fujinomiya City/
There are no indications as toward its status although I suspect it is a honjozo.
It certainly tasted better than expected proving once again the high quality of Shizuoka sake in general!

Alcohol: 14~15 degrees
Bottled in September 2014

Clarity: very clear
Color: almost transparent
Aroma: assertive. Dry and fruity. Pears.
Body: fluid
Taste: Dry and fruity attack.
More complex than expected. Pears, almonds, apricots, coffee beans.
Lingers on for a little while before departing on s drier note.
varies little with food but for a sweeter turn although it will quickly reassess itself to an even drier note.

Overall: very solid and reliable dry sake.
Superb choice for sushi, considering its very reasonable price.
To e enjoyed with izakaya heavy fare, sushi and BBQ!
