New Worlds vs Old World
Here we look at a range of grape varieties and taste what both sides of the hemisphere has to offer. There is often debate on which side is better, whether its the old world such as France and Spain or the New World offerings from New Zealand and Australia. People often have pre conceived ideas about what they like but why don’t you let your taste buds do the deciding!
There are wines that are thought of as the classic wines of the world and which many winemakers around the world have used these wines as benchmarks. Such as a classic Southern Rhone blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre (GSM) or a Bordeaux Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This is a great tasting to get an idea of classic grapes and wines.
