獺祭魔法

最近極有成功感的一件事,就是利用獺祭精碾三割九分,成功改變了慣飲葡萄酒的酒客,也愛上了日本酒。我愈飲獺祭,也愈對它念念不忘,還特別為它找來最合拍的下酒物。這就是獺祭的魔法。

天山地酒

品酒總結 ☆2017年7月15日☆

酒藏 : 天山酒造株式会社 www.tenzan.co.jp
地址 : 日本佐賀県小城市小城町岩蔵1520
類別 : 純米原酒
酒精濃度 : 18.5% (300ml) & 18.9% (720ml)
酒米 : 佐賀県產米、麗豐
精米步合 : 60%
日本酒度 : +2.0
酸度 : 2.0
特點 : 香氣清淡柔和,酒味濃郁,酒體醇厚。入口順滑清新,果味不重,但有奢華的稻米味道,屬於辛口酒。天山地酒強調地方色彩,很有米酒的韵味和精髓。當地人喜歡以佐賀牛肉佐酒,在加拿大則吃味道濃郁的牛排配搭,口感應該不錯。其他濃味的食物,例如鹽漬三文魚、炸雞、壽喜燒、天丼等等,也是天山地酒的好搭檔。此酒適宜凍飲。
售價@LCBO : 加幣 $17.85 (300ml)

加幣 $37.45 (720ml)
