Innovative approach to a winebook. 24 Jun. 2014
By Fries - Published on
Format: Paperback
Many winebooks end up speaking heavily on rules and yields and trends. Here Max Allen goes on to show us that Wine is fun stuff. He shares his (very enthusiastic) views on big grapes like Shiraz and the obscure cool ones too. Big chapters on the obvious regions as well as zeroing in on regions without there own appellations yet. This book is so much fun that it basically leaves out all the maps, and vineyard picks you are used to reading in winebooks. Regardless this book makes you actually want to drink Aussie wines, and better yet get wrapped up in Max's excitement about them too. He really loves the country as a whole and shows the same deference to cold climate regions as to the hot terra rossa soils as well.
