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.
Mount Majura Vineyard, The Silurian, Sparkling, Pinot Noir/Chardonnay, Canberra District, 2012
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.
Wine gifted as a housewarming present.
