'Great wine is a synthesis of nature, art and science. In The Art & Science of Wine, Hugh Johnson, the world's favourite wine author, joins forces with James Halliday, Australia's leading wine authority and an outstanding winemaker, to create a unique analysis of how nature, art and science combine to make the infinite variety of the world's wines. This seminal work follows the decisions every winemaker had to take - from the vineyard, through the vatroom and the cellar, to the bottle - to explain why different wines taste the way they do.'
