Description: This Junmai Dai Ginjo has a beautiful nose of chrysanthemums, marigolds, mushrooms, and unripe strawberries. “banshu” starts with a semi-thick viscosity filled with strawberry and banana flavors wrapped in shimmering and soft complexion.  This is a very easy drinking sake that is a crowd/party pleaser as grape tones and a soft acidity play make it a very wine-like sake. The dry finish is superb and the light and shimmering journey through the mouth makes for a velvety smoothness and drinkability. This sake tastes like quality! Very good chilled and at room temperature. Also, as an interesting side note, the brewer claims " less likely to cause hangover"...hrmmm
