Description

Winemaker Notes: Summum continues to offer itself as the finest wine from Seven Springs. Sourced from 14 rows of vines that thread the spine of the Seven Springs, this bottling routinely deepens the wineries belief in the special terroir of their vineyard. Latin for ‘the utmost’, the 2014 Summum Chardonnay is just that. The juxtaposition of sumptuousness and vivacity is purely the product of the special volcanic soils underlying these vines. That Summum is vinified in an almost identical manner to the La Source Chardonnay further cements the Summum vine rows as a peerless parcel. The fruit from the Summum parcel was gently pressed into 100% new Stockinger puncheons, undergoing spontaneous and indigenous fermentation, The wine was raised in the same puncheons for 10 months before being racked to tank. After 6 months in tank, Summum underwent a light fining before bottling.

“Taut, minerally and deftly balanced, this poised style delivers beautifully defined pear, river stone, floral and lime flavors, showing distinction and presence. Drink now through 2024.” 95 points, Wine Spectator

“The 2014 Chardonnay Summum Seven Springs Vineyard, from the top part of the vineyard, aged identically to La Source, has a beautifully composed bouquet. It is more succinct than the La Source with precise citrus fruit, minerals and flint-Iike scents à la Chablis. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, the oak very well integrated with good substance in the mouth. Touches of lemongrass and dried orange peel lend complexity and it offers great length to complete what is a splendid Oregon Chardonnay.” 93 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
