I thought it was about time I checked on Shidaizumi Brewery in Fujieda City, and since I spotted this bottle at Nagashima Saketen in Shizuoka City I did not need any encouragement!

Shidaizumi Brewery: Junmai Daiginjo

Rice: Yamada Nishiki (Hyogo Prefecture) 100%
Rice milled down to 40%
Yeast: Shizuoka HD-1 (cultivated onpremises)
Dryness: +3
Acidity: 1.4

Clarity: very clear
Colour: Almost transparent
Aroma: Fruity: bananas, almonds, pears. Complex.
Body: Velvety
Taste: Shortish tail. Very soft attack backed by junmai tingle.
Complex. Fruity: Almonds, coffee beans.
Stays soft even when whirled around inside mouth. Leaves with a dry almonds note.

Overall: Very soft light sake.
“Shizuoka Type”. Refined and pleasant, session sake.
Probably best appreciated on its own.
For once drank it for its sake as Tim usually does!
Bottled in September 2008
