Silice: A Bergström Wines Estate

Planted 2001 * Chehalem Mountains AVA * Elevation: 400ft

The French word for “Silica,” the shiny quartz in sand, Silice has the deepest sandy soils of any of our estate vineyards. This 20-acre vineyard sprawls over four different rolling sandy hillsides in the Chehalem Mountains AVA and most probably is a 60 million-year-old sand dune or beach. Silice sees all-day, unrelenting sun exposure, and strong winds that give the Pinot Noirs spicy powerful notes of gingerbread, cola and sassafras, with a mild savory and pretty floral lift while Silice Chardonnay is textural, bright, and delicate with a citrusy floral bouquet. Learn more about the Silice Vineyard

Josh Bergström's Notes
Updated May 2022

Most of our estate Chardonnay acres are found at the Silice Vineyard on Calkins Lane and for good reason! These sandy soils deliver a pale, white-gold colored beauty of a white wine. Sweet and spice-laden aromas of pastry crust, custard, citrus marmalade, ripe pear, green apple, citrus blossom, flint, wet stones, and light kiss of toasted French oak. The palate is layered, textural, and broad with floral flavors of lime, grapefruit, saffron, and sugar cookie. Very enjoyable now and will age well. Drink Now – 2028+.
