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.
In this new edition there is a lot of new information on New Zealand 'the Island influence'—including a map of wine regions and updates on all the wines throughout. There is also more emphasis on Tasmania's wine-producing regions. There are new additions that discuss the popularity of organic wine and updates to the new labelling system for fortifies wines in Australia/New Zealand, which have occurred since the first edition.
