Wine Atlas of Australi 13 Jun. 2010
By Bernardo - Published on Amazon.com

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.
