Evening Land Seven Springs Vineyard Summum Chardonnay 2021
|United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley
The beauty that is Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay is on full display here. Lemon butter and toasted filbert aromas are joined by a wisp of Genmaicha green tea. Peaches with a touch of cinnamon spice cruise a crisp texture guided by bright acidity. Toasted filberts reappear on the long finish.
More savory than sweet, the 2021 Chardonnay Summum blends an array of peaches and apricots before giving way to lemon oil and hints of rosemary. Elegant and silky smooth, with masses of ripe orchard fruits and mineral tones, the 2021 saturates the palate deeply, adding a citrus-induced tension toward the close. The cheeks are left puckered, and the mouth watering for more, as this finishes spicy and intense. It's lightly structured and simply begging the taster back to the glass.
