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



This is another bottle from the batch of 300ml flasks I mentioned before.

“Hagoromo no Mai” (“wing veil dance” from a famous local legend) is a junmai ginjo brewed by Sanwa Brewery in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City (Garyubai) in May 2007

Interestingly enough the rice has been milled down to only 60%.

Clarity: Very clear

Colour: gold (unusally strong colour)

Aroma: light/flowers/ricey

Body: both light and solid

Taste: Powerful and spreads quickly inside mouth with a welcome tingle
Vanilla/banana/bitter chocolate. Lingers around for a while

Overall: very “adult” impression
Goes well with any food and does actually improves at its contact
