About this title


The different flavours we detect in wine is one of the greatest pleasures in drinking wine. This unique study by an award-winning author examines where these flavours come from and what makes them the way they are. Simply put, this book is about the taste of wine, about knowing which flavours a good wine ought and ought not to have, and being able to assess a wine for the presence and absence of those flavours.

From the Publisher:

There is an undoubted social cachet in being able to “appreciate” a good wine, but it shouldn’t be viewed as a code that only the elite can crack. It is truly a pleasure open to all. In Appreciating Wine, Phillip Hills offers detailed, structured tutelage to anyone interested in developing his or her palate. Appreciation, however, is more than mere enjoyment; it requires knowledge and evaluation. To that end, this witty, informative guide will help readers understand exactly why they taste what they do and so be able to make educated judgments about the wine they are drinking. Everything one needs to know about appreciating wine, technically and culturally, is here, making it the perfect companion for all aspiring wine buffs. Phillip Hills writes widely on whisky and wine; his previous book, Appreciating Whisky, was shortlisted for the 2001 Glenfiddich Drinks Book of the Year Award.
