About The Wine

The Ridge of Tears wines are Peter Logan's homage to his late ancestors. Two Shiraz' from two different NSW regions showcasing the differences between the vineyards where they are grown. These wines recieve the most attention and care in the winery from Peter and his team. They are powerful and savoury. They are treated to the best oak.

The Mudgee wine is the bigger, brawnier of the two, with deep pools for fruit and a lavish, smooth mouthfeel. James Halliday awarded this vintage 95 points and Campbell Mattinson awarded it 94.

It's a fitting wine to honour his forefathers, one that will thrill the Shiraz enthusiast who is intrigued by the differences that site has on the finished wine.

About Logan Wines

Logan wines have been a source of excellent value NSW wines for many years.

The label began in 1997 as a partnership between Peter Logan and his father Mal. The wines were an immediate hit with the locals.

Today, owner/winemaker Peter Logan delivers quality at all price points. His wines are clean and bright and made with a strong sense of regionality.

These are good, honest wines that consistently overdeliver for the price.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The face on the label personifies Peter Logan’s great ancestors. 'Druim nan deur' is Scottish Gaelic for 'Ridge of Tears', the old Logan clan war cry. It's an apt name for a wine that has aged this winemaker. Ridge of Tears showcases two shiraz wines from Mudgee and Orange.

The range demonstrates the great quality of these regions, especially in shiraz, showing how good they can be and just how different they are. But it hasn't been easy. In order to make the best possible shiraz from each region we grow the grapes on the best sloping sites, we restrict the vines to low yields in order to achieve perfect balance and concentration, we ferment the small batch of grapes in open fermenter tanks which we plunge by hand and then basket press before mellowing in oak for 12 - 15 months.

In the end the wines are savoury with depth and intensity. The two wines are really quite different yet both are perfumed and retain an elegance in line with the Logan house style. And now they're bottled, the tears are happy ones. Let the ageing begin.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"Sourced from a vineyard only 70kms from the Ridge of Tears Orange Shiraz, and yet a completely different beast. This is beefy and substantial with a swagger of tannin holding it all in firm place. Blackberry, woody herbs, chocolate, coffee grounds. It's dense and long and shows all the sings that it will be a long termer." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"This is rich and substantial. Far richer than the Orange version. This is chocolatey, full, essentially grunty, packed with blackberry, cloves and cocoa. Tannin hits and spreads and in the end: holds firm. It’s not as complex (nor as charming) as the Orange version but it has impact and presence. It’s arguably the better wine; just. A fascinating duo." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.
