About this item

John Platter returns! With the same simple approach to wine which made him a household name in South Africa, he tells the stories of wines and winemakers; taste the wines himself; writes about them in language everyone can understand. Today’s winelands are another country. Young revolutionaries are leading a charge. Old campaigners are rising to the challenge. New areas, new varieties are being explored, ancient vineyards revived. Never has the wine scene been so exciting, so ready for this new book by an old hand. A writer who has also grown and made wine himself. This is not another Platter wine guide. It is not a list of the best’ wines blind-tasted and scored by a panel. It is no more, no less, than John Platter’s purely personal picks of the wines he enjoys drinking. And why. It is completely different from any other wine book on the market. The stunning images are by photographer Clinton Friedman. 261 wines, chosen, personally tasted and described by John Platter Backstories, amusing anecdotes, profiles of the wines and winemakers New areas, new stars, new wineries, new experiences for wine drinkers The wine-wars the revolutionaries, the young guns and the new-old guard Introductions to varieties and blends Easy explanations of wine terms which befuddle everyday drinkers Wine-friendly recipes from winemakers and top wine country chefs
