JC WINE CRITIC, RICHARD EHRLICH, ON GOOSE BAY AND ME­VUSHAL

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

THESE WINES over­whelmed me with what they showed about the qual­ity to be found nowa­days in me­vushal wine. In the bad old days, you could spot me­vushal a mile away by its “cooked”, jammy fruit. The heat is now ap­plied so lightly and deftly that you’d barely know it had been there. Jones said that me­vushal is now merely the equiv­a­lent of a year’s age­ing. And other me­vushal wines at the tast­ing bore him out: they were sim­ply a lit­tle more ma­ture than you’d ex­pect them to be. This is the most ex­cit­ing devel­op­ment in kosher wine that I’m aware of.
