Wine is a living and changing expression of life itself. It has a birth, it reflects the places it is raised, it matures in its making and declines with time. Wandering through the art and science that makes the delectable drop, you will find a rich tapestry of human existence revealed. Robert Geddes is one of the few Australian-born Masters of Wine and has studied, drunk and slept in some of the world's most famous vineyards. A Good Nose & Great Legs is his comprehensive and engaging guide to Australian and international wine culture and lifestyle. With chapters ranging from the history of wine, wine making, varieties, regions, tasting and buying wine to food matching, it is replete with interesting information and insights. When all is said and done, wine is only a drink frothing, swirling and flickering over your tongue, but a closer look reveals the complexity in its antiquity, flavour, diversity, colour and quality. A Good Nose & Great Legs will lead you through these elements and enhance your wine-drinking experience.
