Logan Apple Tree Flat Cabernet Merlot

IN: WINE OF THE WEEK COLUMN

It’s been about a month since we had the pleasure of hosting Peter Logan of Logan Wines for the weekend and now that the latest shipment of new labels and vintages has bedded in I thought it was about time to mention one of them. It was a great weekend and people piled in to meet Peter and taste as many wines as they could. He’s a regular visitor to North Berwick so don’t worry if you missed him this time, he’ll be back for sure next year. His Apple Tree Flat Range makes up the core of his range consisting of five labels and it’s hard to find anything better at that £10 point. I’ll never forget the mountains of 2002 Merlot which we sold soon after opening the shop up in 2004. All of his wines have gained immense complexity since then due more experience and crucial vine age. Peter’s now onto his 20th vintage. This year for the first time since 2008 Peter has introduced a new wine to the Apple Tree Flat range, a Cabernet Merlot blend. It most definitely does not let the side down. The rich aroma shows characters of raspberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, tobacco and fresh turned earth with flavours of blackberry and thyme on the mouth filling palate. Quality winemaking really shines through here (not that I’d ever say that to his face). Logan Apple Tree Flat Cabernet Merlot 2013 (£10)
