SUGII SHUZO - SHIZUOKA
Junmai • Pure Rice Sake
Daiginjo • Rice polished to at least 50%
Genshu • Undiluted
A robust version of a classic Shizuoka Daiginjo. Sugii-san is actually very good at making such a sake and has won plenty of gold medals in the past before deciding he was more interested in full-bodied Kimoto and Yamahai Sake (which is now 85% of his production). This particular Sake was submitted to the Shizuoka competition this year and won one of the main prizes. The aroma is not as strong as Daiginjo made with Hiroshima yeast so more balanced and delicate.
