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.
