Ginban Banshu 50 Junmai Daiginjō (銀盤 純米大吟醸 播州50) is an exquisite and affordable premium sake from Toyama Prefecture. The brewery describes it as a daiginjō with a moderate aroma, full-bodied and full-flavoured. Although the website states that it is produced of Yamada Nishiki rice, the label states "domestic rice" polished down to 50 per cent.

A fruity nose reminiscent of green apples and a hint of pineapple. A touch of tanrei, sweetish at first taste, mild and elegant. Very easy to drink. It was hard not to finish the bottle in one sitting.
