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.

Winemaker Notes

This wine does not shy away from dark-fruited richness. Its aromatics of boysenberry, blackberry, and peppercorns are generous and intoxicating. The sedimentary soils of the Chehalem Mountains showcase minerality, a true expression of Silice's terroir. The palate is medium-bodied and fully fruited with underlying notes of mint tea and cardamom. Accompanying the powerful tannins is an irresistible succulence. We are eagerly awaiting how this wine will evolve in the coming years.
