The array of wines produced by Logan is to be admired, especially given the level of quality and varietal definition expressed from a region that they continue to work hard on to put firmly on the map of Australia’s premium wine growing locations.

The majority of the wines produced by Logan are crafted from fruit grown in Orange, with some labels sourcing fruit from other regions in NSW. Orange as a wine growing region necessitates vineyards to be at least 600 meters above sea level to ensure appropriate climatic conditions for grape growing, Logan’s vineyards sit between 800 and 1050 meters above sea level enabling a long cool growing season with it not uncommon for vintage to complete part way through May. It is this long growing season and diurnal temperature variation that makes the site suitable for cooler climate varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot, yet more traditional varieties such as Shiraz and Cabernet also flourish.

The flagship of Logan is the ‘M Cuvee’ and it really highlights the potential of the Orange region to produce world class sparkling, the wine has elegance and structure that shows quality cool climate fruit, and an adept winemaking hand.

The Logan range has a number of tiers with the ‘Ridge of Tears’ range providing site specific expressions of Orange and Mudgee Shiraz that showcase the unique differences between the two regions located just 70 km apart.

The Logan label is produced with estate grown fruit grown with varieties under the label reflecting the sites unique elevation. The Weemala range is sourced from both Orange and Mudgee and represents outstanding value with well made varietal expressions that range from Tempranillo to Pinot Gris. The Apple Tree Flat label is extraordinary value, with the wines showing freshness, primary fruit and considered winemaking influences.

There is a lot to like about Logan wines, Peter Logan is undoubtedly a world class winemaker who should be commended for his passion and commitment to the Orange wine region. He is making wines that are available to all levels of the market and are true to both the variety and region they come from.
