Compare old world and new world Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
Pinot Noir and Shiraz (or Syrah as it is often called) are the other two great grapes of France; they are planted in the Saone / Rhone valley between Dijon and Valence; pinot in the north and shiraz in the south. This pack compares old world and new world pinot and shiraz. The benchmark new world Pinot comes from New Zealand or California whilst Australia has made its new world Shiraz the benchmark.
The difference between the new and old world wines is dramatic.
