Ginban Banshu "Silver Plate"
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 "...is less likely to cause hangover"...hrmmmOne word to describe this sake brew: Smooth
