It’s time to crack the bubbles! Seriously, I can always find an excuse to pop open a bottle of sparkling wine. What’s your best excuse? Drop it in the comments below!
I received this sample of the Logan Wines 2016 Vintage ‘M’ Cuvée recently to taste (thank you!!).
It’s made from 63% Chardonnay, 19% Pinot Noir and 18% Pinot Meunier and hails from the Orange region in NSW. The combination of vines grown at a high altitude and in a cool climate makes Orange a great spot for producing quality sparkling wines.
This bubbles is made the same way as champagne is made. But remember we shouldn’t call it champagne because it’s not made in the Champagne region in France. ‘Champagne’ is a special term reserved only for our Frenchie cousins who make and grow wines in the designated region.
It’s safe to say this beautiful bubbles went down a treat in our house. Here’s our notes:
In the glass it’s rose gold / onion skin / sunrise hue colour. On the nose creamy citrus notes made us think of lemon butter on scones with hints of fresh raspberries and crunchy apples. While in the mouth it has an incredibly smooth mouthfeel, and refreshing acidity with hints of Turkish delight, almond croissant and citrus. YUM!
This Cuvée retails for $40 and can be bought through www.loganwines.com.au
This wine was sent to me direct from the winery as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
