Shizuoka Sake Tasting 16: Sugii Brewery/Touryuumon

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


Touryuumon, a limited brew by Sugii Brewery (Fujieda City), means “The Door to Success”!
It is a junmai, made from Shizuoka Yamada Nishiki Rice milled down to 60%

Clarity: very clear

Colour: light amber

Aroma: ricey

Body: Fluid and velvety

Taste: vanilla, chocolate, coffee, bananas. Light at first, soon more complex. On the second sip, getting even better with a touch of petillant.
Fades into velvet on the palate.
On the third sip, reveals orange and grapefruit and turns drier.

Overall: “Lover’s Taste”, like a woman you cannot keep your hands on. Calls for the extra sip.
Should be drunk on its own.
