About this product
- DescriptionFrom deep, supple and mouth-filling Shiraz to golden botrytised Riesling, from delicious gooseberry and grass-driven Sauvign 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 Pit Noir, or the Mediterranean summers of the Margaret River in Western Australia for Cabernet Sauvign. James Halliday analyses every wine region in Australia - and there are over seventy - in this definitive book. He studies 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. James Halliday's Wine Atlas of Australia is a masterwork by Australia's leading wine critic and authority.
