The French word for “Silica.” Deep sands, unrelenting sun, and strong winds give the Pinot Noirs spice and flowers. Savory notes of fresh and dried garden herbs, along with our most fruit-forward and ripest reds. Silice Chardonnay is textural, bright, and delicate. Learn more about the Silice Vineyard

Josh Bergström's Notes

This is the fifteenth vintage from this amazing 21-acre terroir of rolling gentle slopes which tens of millions of years ago used to be ancient dunes, sandy beaches and sea bed. This sandy vineyard site is well-exposed to copious sunshine and wind all season long, providing us with one of our most perfumed, elegant, and ethereal Pinot Noirs each and every year. Destined for long life in the cellar. 

The 2017 Bergström Wines Silice Pinot Noir is dark ruby red in color. The aromatic profile is a complex potpourri of fruits, spices, and herbs mixed with a saline note that makes the finish succulent and juicy. This is whole-cluster Pinot Noir at its finest. This wine is ripe, round and velvety, with the signature acidity and tannins of this vintage. A very approachable wine now, but it will also benefit from time in the cellar. Alcohol: 14.1%
