Shuryu (Vogue) Junmai Daiginjo
Vogue represents yet another very seductive Junmai Daiginjo from the skilled hands at Tatenokawa in Yamagata of North Western Japan. This sake is about comfort. You sense it quickly, from the label design to the aroma and taste, it all plays together to perfection. The nose is prominent with beautiful sweet aromas of ripe fruit and big yellow flowers. The brewers inspiration for Vogue is most certainly rooted in Kumamoto Junmai Daiginjo from the Southern part of Kyushu, by using the famous Yeast Nr9 from Kumamotoken kyushu sake research institute. This sake is on the sweet side, but with plenty of body and volume for balance thanks to the qualities of Premium Yamada-Nishiki sake rice from Hyogo Prefecture.
Serve it up chilled at around 15degrees, with raw shellfish, red currant or sharp chèvre.
