Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Australian wine has become a major player in recent years, taking the American market by storm with its upfront fruit, clear flavors, and eminent drinkability. In this handy companion, internationally renowned wine writer Oz Clarke offers readers and travelers an extensive and entertaining look at one of the world's most exciting wine-producing countries. Here the wine lover will find the best Australian wines at every level, from everyday easy-drinking wines to truly great classic wines. With his signature wit and style, Oz shares personal anecdotes from his frequent trips to Australia, discusses key Australian grapes and key wine regions, profiles more than 160 of the country's top producers, and presents labels and tasting notes on more than a hundred wines. Major wine-growing areas are featured in full-color photographs, and top vineyard areas are illustrated with panoramic maps.

Book News Annotation:

In this practical guide, international wine expert Clarke shows his extensive knowledge of and passion for Australian wine. The inclusion of many color photographs, as well as the author's conversational tone make this an approachable introduction to the subject. The book begins with an overview of Australian wines: the country's short history of wine-making, different grapes and wine styles, vineyards, wineries, and wine tourism. The following chapters discuss the characteristics of specific regions, show maps, list producers in the area, and include helpful sidebars on particular wines to try. The guide concludes with annual vintage reports for each region from 1995 to 2004, tourist information, a glossary of terms, an index of main wines, and a subject index.
