Logan Ridge of Tears Mudgee Shiraz 2011 (Mudgee, NSW)
13.5%, Screwcap, $45
‘Making the best possible Mudgee Shiraz is painstaking. Only the best soil at the right altitude and slope, restricting the vines to low yields, plunging the ferment by hand, basket pressing and oak mellowing. And that’s just the parts we can control.’
A heartfelt, well worded statement that from Pete Logan – one of the new breed of Mudgee producers trying to recraft the region’s image.
Score: 17.5/20, 91/100
Would I buy it? On a wine list as a ten year old. Not quite there yet.
