Book Description

Sept. 1 2009

From deep, supple Shiraz to golden Riesling and crisp, sun-kissed Chardonnay, the variety of the Australian landscape allows its wineries to produce some of the best wines in the world. In this definitive guide, wine expert James Halliday analyzes every wine region in Australia, detailing the types of grapes grown, the soil, climate, and its winegrowing history. Each sumptuously illustrated section features highlights of the region’s best wineries and winemakers as well as a map highlighting geographic landmarks and the location of the wineries themselves. Lavish and insightful, this is the ultimate guide to the finest spirits the country has to offer.

Another disappointment, although this is a very good book. I'm used to working with Jancis Robinson's World Atlas of Wine and I couldn't help noticing how simpler are Halliday's maps and how many pages were spent in profiling producers (in such a superficial way, for what is worth), instead of offering more technical/historical information. On the other hand, being a book written on a specific country, it gives the author more space to explore small and otherwise forgotten regions, although many paragraphs seem to be disconnected from the whole as if the rest of the argument had to be eliminated because of space.

This is a must have for anyone studying wine or anyone who loves the wines from Down Under, full of anecdotes on its industry, but do not expect it to be rigorously technical nor masterly written.
