2011 Logan Apple Tree Flat Chardonnay
2015 Botobolar Vineyard Bio-Dynamic Low Preservative Chardo
- 2011 was a very late ripening vintage. The Spring and early Summer at the start of the season was very wet and as a result there was some disease pressure later in the vintage, however as the weather in Central NSW was very dry from January through until the end of vintage we had plenty of time to remove diseased (mould affected) fruit from the vineyard prior to harvest. This meant that only clean healthy grapes were harvested. Harvest time was determined by the acid falling to an acceptable level which resulted in nice elegant wines with generally lower alcohol and particularly varietal characters.
Tyson Stelzer says:“
Early harvest, low oak and low malo can make even Mudgee chardonnay zesty, refreshing and zippy, with flavours of citrus zest, crunchy pear and grapefruit zest.
Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says:“
Logan is on fire with this bargain, restrained chardonnay. Plenty of apple and crab apple fruits, gentle, smooth cool-climate texture, grapefruit and pears too. Superb value and balanced appeal, this is a cracker!Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 2008
