Shizuoka Sake Tasting 20-4: Isojiman Brewery

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



This is the second sake I tasted at Sugimoto Restaurant on Friday, November 16th, 2007:

Isojiman Daiginjo

Rice: Hyogo Prefecture Yamada Nishiki
Rice milled down to 45%
Dryness: +5~+7
Acidity: 1.2

Clarity: very clear

Colour: light gold

Aroma: Fruity: Anise

Taste: Light and very fruity. Complex. Anise, bitter chocolate.
Turns lovely sharp after second sip. Stays elegant and fruity all the time. Becomes more and more complex and calls for another sip.

Overall: Elegant and complex. Asks many questions. A great sake with cooked vegetables in particular!

    I am going to visit them next month. The fact is they are very particular about the “cleanliness” of their sake. But fortunately, their owner has a weak point for French wine and will come up with some extraordinary brews from time to time!
