La Spirale means the vortex; a symbol of life, creation, and the natural formative forces that guide our hands in our agricultural and winemaking pursuits at Bergström Wines. It is also the name of our newest estate vineyard on the Ribbon Ridge AVA, just a stone’s throw from our Le Pré du Col Vineyard and within eyesight of the winery on the Chehalem Mountains AVA. This complex and beautifully positioned Southwest facing 22-acre rolling slope includes more than 14 different marine sedimentary soil expressions. Planted by the Redman family and purchased by our family in 2018. Learn more about the La Spirale Vineyard
Josh Bergström's Notes
Updated May 2022
A pale, white-gold color. Explosive aromas of stone fruits like peach and apricot. Supporting aromas of lemon rind, marmalade, lime blossom, and a briny, oyster-like salinity follow. At once, both mineral-driven and succulent. On the palate, there is electricity and vibrance with mouthwatering citrus flavors like lemon and grapefruit. There is also pear and a delicate touch of pastry crust and vanilla bean. Young and tensile with a great floral expression. A brilliant future will be revealed. Drink Now – 2030+.
