Jamie and Alex explore the history of the battle between the old and new worlds of winemaking. At one point, there was no contest – the history and prestige of the old world was king… but, around the 1970s, things started to change fast and the new world has had an astonishing rise.
But it was always quite easy to tell them apart. New world wines were fruity and ripe; old world were more complex and earthy. But is that still the case today? To find out, we taste three pairs of wines to see what is going on.
