Tasting notes

Wonderfully aromatic, it deftly walks the line between opulence and ebullience, exhibiting the energetic acidity and pronounced minerality that evoke the rocky soils of Seven Springs.

Production

Viticulture

APPELLATION:EOLA-AMITY HILLS

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 deepens our belief in the special terroir of our vineyard. Latin for ‘the utmost’, the 2016 Summum Chardonnay is just that. The juxtaposition of sumptuousness and vivacity is purely the product of the volcanic basalt rock underlying these vines.

Vinification

VINIFICATION:GENTLE WHOLE-CLUSTER CHAMPAGNE PRESS CYCLE
VESSEL:100% NEW STOCKINGER PUNCHEONS (500L)
FERMENTATION:INDIGENOUS FERMENTATION
ÉLEVAGE:12 MONTHS IN 100% NEW STOCKINGER PUNCHEONS 6 MONTHS IN TANK

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 12 months before being racked to tank. After 6 months in tank, Summum underwent a light bentonite fining before bottling.
