The terms “Old World” and “New World” are often discussed when tasting wine, especially when deciphering the location of the wine’s origin. The differences are derived from different wine making practices, location, climate, and the effect of the land (terroir) on the grapes and wine itself. So does this really alter the taste and style of the wine that much? Yes! In this class you will learn the key differences between Old and New World wines, including alcohol content, acidity, oak usage, and fruit flavor profiles for white wines from across the globe. We’ll be focusing on the Bordeaux region of France, and the new world regions that have both emulated this style, and used these classic grape varieties to create their own style and niche. We’ll taste 6 comparisons of classical and neoclassical styles, accompanied by chef selected cheese boards.
