Where do wine grapes come from and how are grape varieties related to one another? What is the historical background of each one? Where are they grown? What sort of wines do they make?
Using cutting-edge DNA analysis and detailing almost 1,400 distinct grape varieties, as well as myriad correct (and incorrect) synonyms, this book examines grapes and wine as never before. Here is a complete, alphabetically presented profile of all grape varieties of relevance to the wine lover, charting the relationships between them and including unique and astounding family trees, their characteristics in the vineyard, and--most important--what the wines made from them taste like.
Presented in a stunning design with eight-page gatefolds that reveal the family trees, and a rich variety of full-color illustrations from Viala and Vermorel's century-old classic ampelography, the text will deepen readers' understanding of grapes and wine with every page. Combining Jancis Robinson's worldview and nose for good writing and good wines with Julia Harding's research, expertise, and attention to detail plus Dr. Vouillamoz's unique level of scholarship, "Wine Grapes" offers essential and original information in greater depth and breadth than has ever been available before. This is a book for wine students, wine experts, and wine lovers everywhere.
Following the harrowing case that nearly finished him off, DI Bob Valentine returns to normal duties in the heart of Burns Country on Scotland's wind-scarred west coast. But all is not well in the town of Ayr, a place ravaged by austerity and slipping closer to the abyss every day. As the near eviscerated corpse of a man is discovered on his kitchen table, fear grips the area and a murder investigation, probing a series of new lows for the town, gets underway. To add to Valentine's woes, the victim's partner is missing - as is her daughter. When a son with a violent past is added to the mix, and the crime tally mounts, a tragic family drama starts to unfold. Drawn to uncover the truth, and haunted by his own nagging doubts about the case, the detective pushes himself ever harder, stretching his own fragile health and delicate home life. Valentine is still battling a post-traumatic stress that initally led to terrifying visions but now threatens to reveal the horrors of the victim's last moments and an afterlife that seems to be calling to him with increasing regularity. Amidst a frenzied media storm, and a ticking clock adding fears for the missing, the investigator must work fast to piece together the illicit secrets of the family's past before the body count increases.
