Chardonnay 'Summum'

Chardonnay Summum Evening Land

Summum continues to offer itself as the finest wine from Seven Springs and a standard-bearer for Oregon Chardonnay from iron-rich volcanic soils. Sourced from just 14 vine rows threading the spine of the vineyard, the 2014 vintage deftly juxtaposes sumptuousness and vivacity. The grapes were gently pressed, fermented and aged in 100% new Stockinger punchones, undergoing spontaneous and indigenous fermentation. The wine was raised in puncheon for 10 months and finished in tank before bottling.

"Pale lemon in colour. Gorgeous nose with lemon, tangerine, vanilla blossom and a tense edge of flinty reduction. Acid is high and bright, again complimented by the waxiness that runs through the Chardonnays of this portfolio. Finish is long with evolving notes of toast, dairy and yeast. (SCJ)"

"Precise and elegantly dynamic, this white unfurls slowly, offering expressive green apple and Meyer lemon flavors, with stony minerality and spicy lees accents that build detail on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2027. 437 cases made."
