Chardonnay 'Summum', Evening Land

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.

Review:
Brilliant straw-yellow. Fresh and energetic on the incisive nose, displaying fresh pear, nectarine and Meyer lemon scents accompanied by suave floral, saffron and chalky mineral flourishes. Silky and open-knit, offering densely packed yet shockingly lively citrus and orchard fruit, honeysuckle, oyster shell and saffron flavors that show superb tension and back-end lift. Finely delineated and lithe in character, finishing extremely long and seamless, with vibrant mineral cut and lingering floral and orchard fruit notes.
