Description
A fully revised and updated edition of James Halliday’s award-winning, definitive, and unrivaled atlas on Australian wine. From deep, supple, and mouth-filling Shiraz to golden botrytised Riesling, from delicious gooseberry and grass-driven Sauvignon Blanc to the generosity of sun-kissed Chardonnay, Australia produces wines that are among the best in the world. The diversity of Australian landscapes and soils ensures an optimal environment for every variety of wine grape, whether the cool climate of Tasmania for Pinot Noir, or the Mediterranean summers of the Margaret River in Western Australia for Cabernet Sauvignon. In this definitive book, James analyzes every wine region in Australia—over seventy of them. He describes the types of grapes grown, the soil, the climate, the winegrowing history, and also introduces the most famous and respected wineries, winemakers, and their signature wines. Each section is sumptuously illustrated and features a specially created map highlighting geographic landmarks and the location of the wineries. The 2014 edition has been fully updated to include new wine regions, and features stunning photography and detailed maps throughout—a must-have for wine enthusiasts.
