This fully revised and updated edition of Wine by Style groups wines by taste rather than country of origin to extend your wine-drinking knowledge and guide you to the bottles you’ll enjoy most. It’s a refreshingly simple and unique way of exploring wine, and a down-to-earth and lively approach to a vast subject. Each chapter covers a main style—from whites and reds to rosés, from champagne and sparkling wines to fortified wines. Fiona Beckett explains the different flavors, and includes a comprehensive list of wines for each style with descriptions of where they are produced, the grapes they’re made from, and what they taste like. There are also useful tasting notes, keys to flavors and price, and a practical chapter on matching wine and food, serving and storing wine, and spotting faulty wines. The influence of climate and soil, and the effect of different winemaking techniques, are explored in full.
