Mount Majura Vineyard The Silurian 2012

Named after the Silurian period which gave the rock upon which the vineyard is planted. Unsure of the percentage split, the current vintage of 2015 is listed as chardonnay 59% and pinot noir 41%, however the labeling here has pinot above chardonnay. Crown seal. Disgorged in 2015.

Bread crust and soft notes of tomato sauce, glazed red currants, orange pith and baked apple. A developing palate: Red fruit blushes with a sweeter richer citrus chardonnay aspect. Honey underscores a still chalky texture with nippy acidity. No problem to last a few more years and flesh out further.

RRP: $30
Alc: 12%

Wine gifted as a housewarming present.
