Tishbi Junior 2008
At one past midnight on the third Thursday of each November, from little villages and towns in France, over a million cases of Beaujolais Nouveau begin their journey to Paris for immediate shipment to all parts of the world. By French law, Beaujolais Nouveau is to be released no earlier than the third Thursday of November.
While visiting Israfood 2008, T in Tel Aviv had an opportunity to taste the Tishbi Winery Beaujolais Nouveau equivalent called "Junior". Cute name!
The Israeli Wine Portal comments "...a young wine, refreshing and fruity, made using the same method as in the Beajolais region." It's ready to drink NOW! Available at most wine shops for 32 NIS per bottle.
More about Israfood 2008 in the weeks to come.
