Profiling 130 wine grapes, covering classic, second tier and alternative varieties, Varietal Wines provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive survey of the varieties currently grown and made in Australia. Halliday explores the history of classic and second tier varieties and their significance in both international and Australian wine landscapes, including detailed information on the characteristics of each variety and wine, the diversity of regional styles, the best producers, and production statistics from Australia and around the world. Details of the 95 lesser varieties are also given, reflecting the dynamic spread of new varieties in the Australian wine industry.
