Sigrid Chardonnay

Willamette Valley AVA

We believe strongly in the power and promise of Oregon Chardonnay. Sigrid Chardonnay is an homage to our Swedish grandmother whose spirit, grace, and strength inspired three generations of Bergström children. After harvesting each of our estate vineyards by hand, we ferment the fruit separately in small French oak barrels, where it undergoes full malolactic fermentation and aging sur lie for 18 months. Only then do we select the finest of these barrels for our Sigrid Chardonnay. In a bottle of Sigrid, you will find the layered textures, mineral structure, fresh citrus and stone-fruit flavors and floral aromas we hope will inspire you to continue following the Oregon renaissance of this noble white grape.

Winemaker Notes

Pale straw in color. Reminiscent of breathing in fresh ocean air, complete with crushed oyster shell and flint. Its complex nose exudes layers of jasmine perfume and key lime. Minerality is a cornerstone of this Chardonnay. Incredibly balanced on the palate and rich with hazelnuts and flaky pie crust. Mid-palate is bursting with tangy canary melons and succulent acidity. Suave oak tannin balances nicely with the structure and light ginger spice continues to evolve in the glass.

94 | A subtle nose with almond nuances. Excellent mid palate breadth. I love the expansive nature of the palate.

86 | Coconut, milk powder, brown apple; youthful but fruit is a bit subdued on nose.

92 | Savoury and smoky. The palate is fairly lean with a taut biscotti and grapefruit character.

87 | simple, clean, mineral, acidic hints of lees and nutts, med bod, bright acidity lean finish needs more varietal identity
