Mongai Fushutsu Junmai Daiginjo Premium 50 (プレミアム 純米大吟醸 門外不出) has a fruity aroma and a full body. Its moderate acidity makes it suitable for wine glasses. The sweetness and soft umami taste and the mellow aroma match very well. In 2017, the Premium 50 won the Ultimate Gold Award in the 'Delicious Sake in a Wine Glass Award' (ワイングラスでおいしい日本酒アワード). The jurors evaluated it as follows:
  • "Fruity nose; its acidity is moderately suitable for wine glasses. It remains sweet, interesting."
  • "Cheese-like scent. A voluminous taste and acidity."
  • "Though its nose is very mild, it surprises your tongue. There is a gap between aroma and taste."

This a winner of the 2017 Delicious Sake in a Wine Glass Gold Award (ワイングラスでおいしい日本酒アワード), and it's worth gold every drop of it! Very mild and elegant nose and a voluminous taste of umami, with a slightly sour finish, quite reminiscent of gentle chardonnay.
