How to Drink Australian: An Essential Modern Wine Book
The landscape of Australian wine is cracking with new energy and historic traditions that make it one of the most exciting wine-producing countries in the world right now. But the scholarship on Australian wine hasn't always matched the output.
How to Drink Australian corrects that. It takes readers on a journey around the country, state by state, region by region. Each state has an introduction. And the most significant regions have their own separate chapters within each state.
And within that the authors consider:
- The evolution of wine in that region
- The lay of the land
- Wine styles
- The inside scoop, pressing concerns and current events in the region
- Key producer profiles - both up and comers and industry stalwarts.
Each regional chapter is accompanied by its own detailed map created by renowned cartographer Martin von Wyss. The maps locate important vineyards and producers as well as showcasing what makes the region tick.
A glossary and directory of the most important producers, including icons that further explain their significance to their region, is also included.
