Barossa Shiraz

This blog does not engage in promotion nor advertising, but I must make an exception, given I just published a wine book.

Barossa Shiraz: Discovering the tastes of the Barossa's regions is the first book in Australia to systematically investigate the relationship between the flavour and structure of a wine and its origin. Barossa Shiraz divides the Barossa into eleven sub-regions, each with its own terroir. Major differences between terroirs are identified, and a tasting profile for each sub-region is provided. Major wineries and benchmark vineyards are discussed. Their locations are shown on detailed maps, and the book includes profiles of leading Barossa winemakers.

Reading Barossa Shiraz will enable enthusiasts to appreciate the differences in flavour and structure of Shiraz - and to enjoy their wine even more.

Andrew Caillard, MW: Thomas Girgensohn's observations and intuitive tastings, based on extensive personal experience and systematic review are topical, sagacious and prescient... Barossa Shiraz is a remarkable and enlightened achievement.

For more details visit the publisher's website You can order the book there or from any good bookstore.

Regardless of whether you're a really serious collector of wines, an occasional drinker or someplace in between you will want in the very minimum some medium of storage plus the ways to maintain an opened bottle fresh for a working day or two. Even though plenty of wine now includes a screw top you you'll still need to pull corks at some point and if you particularly enjoy white wine you will need to maintain it at the right temperature.
