Shizuoka Sake Tasting 9: Fujinishiki Brewery

Please check Shizuoka Gourmet Blog for all the gastronomy in Shizuoka Prefecture!



It certainly feels extremely pleasant to realize that Shizuoka Prefecture offers a host of great “honjozo” and “junmai”, supposedly at the lowest runk of the “premium sake” ladder.
Why not take full advantage of it knowing they are comparatively extravagant!

This particular brew is a honjozo recently produced by Fujinishiki Brewery in Fuji Gun which has been elected the best “ginjo” in Shizuoka Prefecture!

Fujinishiki, Honjozo, rice milled down to 65%

Aroma: sharp, flowers, sakura (cherry blossoms)

Colour: almost transparent, with a very light amber hue

Clarity: perfectly clear

Body: light

Taste: Sakura flowers. First almost sweetish, turning dry in the palate.

Dry but feminine impression. Would make the perfect aperitif.
