2017 Evening Land Chardonnay 'La Source'
Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon
The generously-textured, showstopping Chardonnay is grown just below the Summum Chardonnay vines. The La Source will age beautifully but offers up more richness and depth upon release than any other Evening Land Chardonnay bottling.
95 points, Decanter Magazine.
"Density and freshness, with aromas of lemon curd and fresh flowers – a bit of spice, but the oak influence is well integrated, underpinned by a marked mineral component. The fruit comes from the base of one specific lava flow in the celebrated Seven Springs Vineyard, is vinified in 500L puncheons and sees a year in cask (10% new) and a further six months in tank. Superbly balanced and could age for a decade or more: impressive!"
