About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
It tells us what a pinotage is; what chenin blanc tastes like; how to find Australian bargains; what goes with sushi; and many more. It has some amusing notes too. The author described two major styles of pinot noir (a grape variety) wine as likened to "Cate Blanchett" and "Angelina Jolie" - I suppose the rest of us will have to taste just the wine and imagine what it's like to to taste the stars.
Some of the information may be a little exaggerated, for example, when he teaches us how to pair nebbiolo (a grape variety) wine he says that the nebbiolo by itself is so tannic it might remind us of "sucking yesterday's tea-bag", but there are many nebbiolo wine that aren't as tannic as we are led to expect. The Australian "Two Hands" nebbiolo is tannic but not overpowering and can even be drunk easily by itself. His description of the different producer terms for Bordeaux and Burgaundy wine as "chateau" and "negociant" respectively will need clarification because they are more complicated than just a name, but the book was intended to provide specific information in brief terms for easy recollection. This was not meant to be a comprehensive book on wine, but that does not mean that it is a book meant only for the novice. It is a handy book that even the advanced wine drinker will be happy to own.
