Book review: The Juice 2010

We have just received Matt Skinner‘s latest guide to wine – The Juice 2010. We reviewed the book back in in 2008 and most of our comments still stand. I am starting to wonder about the naming of wines – is there too much drinking going on or too much watching of horse races? Some of the sites contain tasting notes, if you are that way inclined. Here’s the Australian wines in the $10-$20 price range to print out take to local bottlo. Grab the book for further information and many more recommendations, including wines from overseas.
