Logan Wines - Weemala Pinot Gris - NSW Central Ranges

CONSISTENTLY popular at Cellar Door, and ideal
with sashimi, antipasto or roast chicken.

REGULAR readers will know we've an aversion to reviewing wines in this column on the basis of some gong they've won at some show or other – our belief being that if we give one maker a plug for their success, we need to give every medal-winner a plug… and with that many medals flying around the place we'd need the whole of a publication like this just to list them.

But that doesn't stop us giving mention to recognition achieved by a wine from small family concern, Logan Wines in the Central Ranges of NSW. Because their Weemala Pinot Gris off the family's cold climate Orange vineyards is interesting in that it is now the consistently most-popular wine at their Mudgee cellar door, becoming as winemaker Peter Logan says "something of a celebrity in its own right."

And the just-released 2015 is probably good proof why, with delicate yet discernible bright pear, orange rind and nutty flavours, a crunchy finish and lovely bouquet. And at $19.95 it's a wine you'll find equally enjoyable with anything from sashimi to antipasto or a traditional roast chicken.
