Author(s): Jeremy Oliver
Jeremy Oliver, one of the best-selling Australian wine writers, has totally revamped his successful guide to buying and cellaring wine. Now including tasting notes on the current releases of each of the 1500-odd wines covered in the book, the 2005 edition of The Australian Wine Annual is virtually two books rolled into one.
This title goes through the best and best-selling Australian wines, maker by maker, vintage by vintage, offering a huge amount of information at a glance. In addition to ratings and drinking windows for each of the many thousands of wines listed, it provides a full-colour image of each wine label, a pithy view of what's happening with each winery, its most important details and reviews of current wines.
With a simplified key and a greater emphasis on cheaper and mid-priced wines, this edition includes an updated Vintage Report for 2004 plus commentary on issues like seasonal variations, recent trends and developments in Australian wine and wine making, as well as Jeremy Oliver's tips on what to look for when tasting wine.
Encyclopedic, accessible and extremely easy to use, Jeremy Oliver's The Australian Wine Annual 2005 is the definitive guide to Australian wine for wine lovers the world over.
