I am looking for the best Australian wine book that gives details on Vintage, ratings, retail price etc.

Any suggestions would be appreciated



Hugh

Hi all

Just thought I'd add my two cents worth, too.

I use a suite of different books including Halliday, Oliver, Robin Bradley's Gold Book and the Penguin Wine Guide. Sometimes I will find a wine that has been rated poorly in these books to be to my taste!

Fair enough! IMHO, enjoying wine is an exercise in personal taste, regardless of the science, ratings, marketing, show results etc. involved.

Therefore my advice is quite simple:

Buy a couple of different books by different authors (if you can afford it. If not, post questions on forums such as this).

Use these books as a guide (as they are intended), not as the be all and end all.

Most importantly, buy and drink wine that you enjoy regardless of how it is rated in the various guides.
