Logan Weemala Pinot Gris

 Pinot Gris/Grigio has gone the way of Sauvignon Blanc to some extent: large scale production, not much focus on typicity or special quality attributes. It is positioned as a summer wine, not many questions will be asked.

It is therefore good to see, when a positive surprise, and from an unexpected corner, comes along. The 2020 Logan Weemala Pinot Gris comes from Mudgee and includes some fruit from Orange. The wine has a pale orange/grey colour. 

This is a light and refreshing wine with lemon peel and pear flavours, and a pleasant mouthfeel, as the wine has good energy. It is still enjoyable on the back palate, where many others fall short. The wine finishes dry. It is excellent value for money.

Score: 91/++
