Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Morimoto Brewery-Sayogoromo Amakuchi Tokubetsu Junmai

MORIMOTO-AMA-2

Hitosi Morimoto, owner nad master brewer at Morimoto Brewery in Kikugawa City has always been considered a maverick by his peers.
This time he decided to produce a sake called Sayogoromo Amakuchi. “Amakuchi” stands for “sweet” and knowing that sake in Shizuoka Prefecture are generally very dry it was a bit of a provocation although it was not that sweet by the standards of other Prefectures in Japan!

MORIMOTO-AMA-3

Naturally, it is a very limited brew!

MORIMOTO-AMA-4

Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Dryness: – 4
Acidity: 1.6
Bottled in April 2016

Clarity: very clear
Color: faint golden hue
Aroma: drier than expected. Discreet and fruity. Raisins
Body: fluid
Taste: Gentle and fruity attack backed with puissant junmai petillant.
Drier than expected.
Complex: raisins, muscat, custard, honey, castella.
Lingers for a while before departing on drier notes of castella.
Will turn sweeter with food before turning back suddenly to a drier note later.

Overall: drier than expected but very deep and fruity.
Drinks like a sweet white sherry.
Probably best enjoyed in place of a dessert wine!
Suggested pairings: cheese, chocolate.

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Morimoto Brewery-Koshu Roman 2011Genshu Junmai

HASHIGO-MORIMOTO-4

On Sunday May 22nd, I had the occasion to meet again an old friend, namely Hitoshi Morimoto, owner and master brewer at Morimoto Brewery in Kikugawa City at a great izakaya in Shizuoka City, Hana Oto, which took part in the annual Shizuoka De Hashigo Sake event!

HASHIGO-MORIMOTO-2

The sake served for this special event was a real and very gem, a koshu/aged sake brewed in 2011 and matured at room temperature. It goes without saying that you need incredible expertise and a lot of courage to create such a nectar!

HASHIGO-MORIMOTO-7

Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 17 degrees
Pasteurized only once
Matured at room temperature
Bottled in 2011

Clarity: very clean
Color: golden
Aroma: dry and fruity. Dry Sherry
Body: fluid
Taste: deep, fruity attack backed up with only a little junmai petillant.
Complex: dry sherry, plums
Lingers for a while before departing on drier notes of greens and more sherry.
Varies little with food but a sweeter note of white sherry.

Overall: simply extravagant and a very rare experience!
Absolutely splendid sake to be enjoyed as a sherry, either at room temperature or lightly warmed.
The kind of sake you appreciate like a fine sherry after dinner in special company!
If you really wish to pair it, do so with roast beef, BBQ, yakitori and cheese!

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Morimoto Brewery-H. Morimoto Filtered Tokubetsu Junmai Nama Genshu

MORIMOTO-FILTERED-2

Last night when I paid a quick visit to my favorite oden bar in Shizuoka City, the Mama san showed this bottle she had just acquired at Tomitaya Sake Store in Shizuoka City!

MORIMOTO-FILTERED-3

Great Brew Master Hitoshi Morimoto was having fun once again in Kikugawa City, in the central-Western part of Shizuoka Prefecture!
The name was just his as he called it H. Morimoto Filtered (in English) for this Tokubetsu Junmai (no pure alcohol blended in) Nama (unpasteurized) genshu (no pure water blended in)!
Incidentally, it is a very limited edition!

MORIMOTO-FILTERED-4

Rice: Gohyakumangoku (Shizuoka Prefecture)
Rice milled down to 60%
Yeast: Kyoukai 901 Go
Alcohol: 17~18 degrees
Dryness: – 4
Bottled in February 2016

Clarity: very clear
Color: faint golden hue
Aroma: dry and discreet. Rice, faint pears
Taste: very fruity, sweetish attack backed up with puissant junmai petillant.
Complex: apples, plums, apricots, sweet pears.
Lingers for a while before departing on sweet, fruity and flowery notes and oranges.
No acidity whatsoever but the sweetness is not cloying at all.

Overall: a very fruity and flowery nectar!
Very unusual concept in Shizuoka prefecture where the great majority of sake are dry.
Very deep and complex with ever-changing facets surging up.
A sake best enjoyed on its own although could definitely be savored in the place of a dessert wine.
A last liqueur for the road, but one easy on the body and soul!
Suggested pairings: Chocolate, blue cheese.

Manholes in Shizuoka prefecture 1

SN3O5162

A manhole cover over the access to a subterranean fire hydrant!
The design advertises the fact that Shizuoka City , Sumpu at the times, was the city chosen by the greatest Japanese Shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu, when he chose to retire from politics!
With Mount Fuji and the Abe River!

I already know of many blogging friends in Japan taking pictures of manhole covers all over Japan.
The reason is simple enough: as there is little chance of them being stolen (I can’t say the same thing back in our countries!) the local/municipal government often use them as touristic advertisements !

I decided to start looking around when I found quite a few in Shimada City during the Shimada Obi Festival.
As I’m sure there are quite a few there should quite a few more articles about the subject in the offing!
I might even close this series with another “Ten Best”!

SN3O5019

Stylized Tea leaf on a manhole cover in Kikugawa City!

In Japan manhole covers are not only found above accesses to sewers but also to electric cables, phone cables, gas conduits and water accesses.
There not always round but also square, rectangular and square.
You might add the many small ones used for access to electric or phone cables, too!

SN3O5020

Kikugawa City is very famous for its green tea.
The design above is that of a young lady picking the new leaves by hand and wearing traditional Japanese farmer clothes!

SN3O5128

The design of this manhole was inspired by an old ukiyoe/woodblock print depicting the crossing of Oi River at Hourai in Shimada City!

SN3O5125

Shimada Obi Festival on a manhole cover!

SN3O5126

The crossing of the Oi river at Hourai In Shimada City with Mount Fuji in the background.
The bridge crossing the river there is the longest wooden bridge in the whole world!

SN3O5127

A Sabre Dancer at the Shimada Obi Festival!

SN3O5156

A symetrical design for a manhole used by the notorious Shizuoka Gas Company!
If you to know why I said “notorious” I can explain in a separate article!

SN3O5157

An enameled manhole cover in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City. Probably that of an electric company!

SN3O5163

A very small manhole cover to access to another fire hydrant in Shizuoka City!

SN3O5128

A rectangular manhole in Shizuoka City over the access to another fire hydrant.
The design represents Mount Fuji, tea fields, the Abe River and the Toro Ruins!
