9780156032919: Oz Clarke's Grapes and Wines: The definitive guide to the world's great grapes and the wines they make

First published in hardcover as Oz Clarke’s Encyclopedia of Grapes, Oz Clarke’s Grapes and Wines is newly revised and updated to provide the most current information on an even wider array of grapes. Oz covers chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, and fifteen other "classic" grapes in depth, and includes features on tradition and innovation, methods used in the vineyard and the winery, and different wine styles around the world. He also provides vivid descriptions of more than three hundred grape varieties organized in his renowned A-to-Z format, as well as a glossary of technical terms and a wine decoder that lists which grapes go into which wines.

This authoritative volume by one of the world’s great wine writers is all you need to distinguish among grape varieties— the wines they create and the flavors they contribute—and to make an informed choice on selecting the most satisfying wines.

From the Back Cover:

From Albarino to Zinfandel, an essential reference for both the connoisseur and the novice
 
“If we have any interest in wine and its flavors, we have to be interested in the grape variety itself. If we have any interest in how a wine matures and changes with age, we have to know about the potential of the particular grape. If we care about the style of a wine, whether it should be sweet or dry, fizzy or fortified or still, each different grape variety’s peculiar talents will be of prime importance.”—Oz Clarke
