How much do you know about wine? [quiz]

The world of wine is developing rapidly, so much so that the updated fourth edition of The Oxford Companion to Wine has added 300 new entries, including wine apps, aromatics, geosmin, minerality, natural wine, social media, and tasting notes language. The wine map as a whole has changed with countries like Hong Kong and many in Northern Europe developing as substantial wine producers.

How much do you know about this rapidly-developing area? Do you know your Merlot from your Shiraz? Or your Chardonnay from your Sauvignon Blanc? Take the quiz below and test your knowledge of the rich and varied world of wine in preparation for the holidays.
