Shizuoka Sake Tasting 17/3: Sanwa Brewery

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



Next in the 300 ml bottele series is Garyubai Junmai Ginjo brewed this year by Sanwa Brewery in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City. Please note the label obviously aimed at romantic ladies!

Clarity: very clear

Colour: light gold

Aroma: light/flowers/gardenias/banana

Body: strong and marked

Taste: Tingle spreading through the palate and lingering. with liquorice at first. Becomes more complex with banana, liquorice and then turns fruity/apricot/raisins

Overall: A sake that goes down well with any food. Comparatively strong taste for a Shizuoka sake.
