Spanish Beauty Captures Mudgee Terroir To A ‘T’

November 9, 2013 Destination Feature No Comments Email Email

Lifestyle FeatureLATEST Aussie maker to come out with a Tempranillo – that wonderful red whose homeland is the Rioja region of Spain and which is now one of the fastest-growing “new” varietals in Australia – is Logan at Mudgee in the NSW Central Ranges.

Peter Logan’s exceptionally-rewarding 2012 Tempranillo under his Logan Weemala label is one he says has been an equally-rewarding journey in the making. “It’s a Tempranillo that I think captures the Mudgee terroir to a ‘T,’ from its savoury varietal characters to flavours of sarsaparilla and earthiness, and even the coal dust of Mudgee,” he says.

“It’s a rustic beauty that fills a void in our Weemala line-up for a red that is both age-worthy – and steak-worthy.”

Well-priced at $19 this is a great drop to enjoy with a steak as Peter suggests, herb and garlic lamb loin chops off the BBQ, or with traditional Spanish cured ham and roasted vegetables.

ONE TO NOTE: YELLOWGLEN has enjoyed a well-earned reputation as a maker of  Australian sparkling wines for some forty years now, and a re-launch of its Vintage Perle is, well, a pearler of an idea.

Chief Winemaker Trina Smith blended classic sparkling varieties from across our leading sparkling regions to create this 2009 Yellowglen Vintage Perle, a drop that’s sure to impress on any occasion when a celebratory bubbly is called for.

Nicely priced at $24.99 it has lovely layers of complex flavours, a delicate bead and a fresh and lingering finish, red-berry fruit flavours reflecting the high Pinot Noir component and its Chardonnay component adding lightness and elegance.

HERB and garlic lamb loin chops off the BBQ simply ideal with this.

 PEARLER of a come-back idea when partying is to the fore.
