In this book, acclaimed wine writer Andrew Jefford demystifies the world of wine by exploring both the tastes of wine and broader wine styles. He begins with the three things that determine a wine's taste. First, grapes; recognizing the taste of a dozen or so varieties will enable you to predict the taste of most wines. Next, places: Andrew examines flavours from the major winemaker on a wine's flavours. The book moves on to wine styles according to their colour, weight and whether they are still, sparkling or fortified. Andrew also discusses wine and food matching and choosing wine in restaurants.
