Wine Style Guide
Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.
Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.
Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.
Brilliant and pale straw in color, the aromas are still tight and compete for attention with citrus fruit and orange blossoms nose, an impressive crushed wet stone character and hints of flintiness. The attack on the palate is bright and light, yet finely textured with a mandarin orange character, focused and precise, the citrus and stony character lingers on the palate with an elegant finish.
"Elegant, refined and racy, offering a taut mouthful of mineral, slate and chalk notes around a zingy core of lemon and quince flavors that don't quit as the finish soars. Seems almost reticent, but the flavors keep hovering with amazing delicacy. Drink now through 2020."
"The 2009 Chardonnay Summum Seven Springs Vineyard received the same elevage as its siblings but was chosen from a tenderloin parcel of the vineyard. It offers up a complex perfume of minerals, smoke, floral notes, white peach, and spiced apple. This sets the stage for a remarkably rich, concentrated, and lengthy Chardonnay, one of the finest I have tasted from Oregon. By the way, all three Chardonnays weigh in at under 13% alcohol and with pHs less than 3.4."
