By C. E. Hawker
Now, the opposite morning i used to be lucky sufficient to obtain a duplicate of a pleasant little paintings, from the pen of Mr. C. E. Hawker, entitled "Chats approximately Wine." Its item is the modest one among attempting to "awaken an curiosity within the topic between those that haven't hitherto given a lot inspiration or awareness to it," and to stress the significance of acquiring one's offers from right and trustworthy assets. The publication is neither tradey nor boring, and it'll be learn with appreciate by way of paper investors, in addition to others, who've an clever curiosity within the topic, or a wish to gather one. The gourmet and the fellow, particularly if he be of modest skill, who wants to begin maintaining a small cellar, will locate it a delightful consultant loose from all technicalities, and a piece calculated in different respects to win his approval. the writer longs for a recrudescence of a flavor for wine instead of for the current choice for spirits, which latter are extra damaging to the reason for actual temperance, and loads of common sense is expressed in friendly diction.
Definitions of wine are as a number of as these of genius, and often simply as close to or as a long way, from the reality. Mr. Hawker asks, "What is Wine?" and reminds us that:
A flask of wine, like a bottle of ginger beer, comprises alcohol, however it comprises many different issues besides. firstly approximately all its bulk includes rain-water, exquisitely filtered and distilled through the kindly solar and subtly enriched with energy by way of the silent alchemy of Nature. the fellow who drains an entire bottle of sound wine absorbs just a unmarried glass of alcohol: and it should always be remembered that the alcohol of usual wine differs from the alcohol of the chemist's laboratory up to a bee's honey differs from the chemist's saccharine or glucose. It follows, for this reason, brilliant wine-drinker ...knows rather well that his trusty beverage isn't mere alcohol, yet alcohol transformed and corrected by means of the opposite and extra plentiful parts of wine.
Then Mr. Hawker permits mild upon the pitfalls into which the green shopper of wines is susceptible to stumble by the hands of unscrupulous wine retailers and resort and eating place owners, and upon a variety of nefarious "tricks of (he trade." which aren't missing in crafty and ingenuity. all of it makes very friendly interpreting, as additionally do the various chapters on "Doctors and Wine" and at the wines of France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Madeira, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Australia and California. My readers will thank me for the advice in the event that they peruse Mr. Hawker's little quantity.
