There are a number of ahadith wherein the prophet explicitly forbade making nabidh by mixing dates with grapes, or by mixing old dates with fresh. While the grapes prohibition might be understood to avoid inadvertently making wine, I don't understand why mixing fresh with old dates is also forbidden.

Why was this mixture brought up in particular? What is the wisdom behind it?
