Wine lovers will know this expression, when the new beaujolais wine is introduced every year.
I'm not going to talk about wine however, but about the new '5 euro' banknote, and it's security features.
I had to take a picture from the internet, as it's impossible to scan the banknotes I have.
(Of course that's the purpose of the security features, that scanning becomes impossible).

We see the head of the Greek godess Europa, and holding the banknote in the light, the same head apprears as watermark.

A third (3) new thing, is the colour shifting 5
Previously only € 50 notes and higher, got a colour shift ink. Now this feature is also used for the 5 euro note.

We also notice more abbreviations then before on the note. Bulgarian and Czech is added. (6)
Finally, (7) the signature of M. Draghi, gouvernor of the European Central Bank has been put under the European flag.
