As New Zealanders become increasingly discerning about the wines we are buying and drinking, we are also appreciating the marvellous array of high-quality wines being produced in New Zealand.

Wine in New Zealand is a serious introduction to this complex and fascinating topic. It looks first at New Zealand as a wine-growing country, focusing on the grape varieties and on the key regions from Auckland and Northland to Central Otago.

Important aspects of vineyard design and viticulture are covered, and a year in the vineyard is tracked season by season. The intricacies of winemaking are clearly explained, and the mysteries of what a winemaker actually does are revealed. A key part of the book is a wine-by-wine description of the key varieties produced in New Zealand.

From Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon, from Methode Traditionelle to dessert wines, information is given on the characteristics (including regional differences and vintages), special cultivation and winemaking techniques. Useful chapters on selection and cellaring wine, keeping records, wine tasting, serving wine, and matching food and wine complete this informative and practical book.

Illustrated throughout with maps, diagrams and high-quality colour photographs, this is an important addition to any wine-lover's bookshelf.
