Logan is a family owned and operated winery in the NSW Central Ranges area (that’s Orange and Mudgee) of which Peter Logan is the owner and head winemaker. Their grapes in Orange are amongst the coolest grown in the country, sitting at 1000 metres above sea level on an extinct volcano, Mt Canobolas. Cool to cold temperatures, long slow ripening, plenty of sunshine and ancient volcanic soil provide a particular terrior for pinot noir, pinot gris, riesling, chardonnay and other grapes, including elegant spicy shiraz. Being 400 metres lower than Orange, the neighbouring region of Mudgee has a climate characterised by warm days and cool to cold nights in the growing season, while the soils are ironstone and quartz laced gravelly loam, conditions great for growing shiraz and tempranillo with character and depth.
Logan range consists primarily of traditional varieties and blends with a couple of cold climate heroes (Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir). These wines are made purely from our grapes grown in the high altitude of Orange, in some of the highest altitude vineyards in Australia. The restraint and elegance feel European, the fruit character is distinctly Australian. The delicate embroidery on the labels reflects the unique fruit flavours of each wine. Each one is lovingly and skillfully executed. Just like the wine.
2022 was a particularly good year for Sauvignon Blanc. A bit over one-third (37%) of the wine was fermented in old French oak barrels for texture, the remainder in stainless steel tank. Wild yeast. This Sauvignon Blanc is bright and aromatic but with a softly textured feel.
The Logan Sauvignon Blanc has recently been awarded 90 points by Halliday Wine Companion.
