The standard that other wine encyclopedias should reach, 2 Mar. 2004
If you are a wine buff, you'll have looked at Parker. If you're a new world wine lover you NEED Platter. This definitive guide to South African wines is comprehensive in its listings with the added beneift of being a great wine touring guide. If you've ever 'done' a wine route you'll realise the benefits of a book like Platter's.
Every country's wine board should commission a work like this!
