Shizuoka Sake Tasting 13-6: Hana no Mai Brewery

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



This is the second bottle tasted by the Shizuoka Geeks on December 7th, 2007

Hana no Mai Brewery (Hamamtsu City) Kura dashi Ginjo Nama Sake
Rice: Shizuoka Yamada Nishiki
Rice milled down to 55%

Clarity: Very clear

Colour: Transparent

Aroma: Flowers, light

Body: Velvety

Taste: very dry impression.
Turns sharpish with food. Reminiscent of custard/vanilla/almonds.
Tends to go through sweet/sour cycles with food later.

Overall: Sharpish dry sake, but tends to turn “sweet and sour” with food.
Would probably appeal more to gentlemen than to ladies

    I am glad you had a chance to enjoy Hananomai. We tried three kuradashi nama at 9:00 am in the morning while you were busy with healthy cricket game. I have to try it with food next time!

    I must say that drinking at 9:00 am would simply kill me!
