Our twelfth vintage of Sigrid Chardonnay comes exclusively from our oldest plantings of estate Biodynamic Chardonnay from the Bergström Vineyard and Silice. This has long been our flagship white wine at Bergström Wines, aiming to redefine cool climate American Chardonnay as the perfect balance of succulent natural acidity, textural flavors, and mouthfeel. Named after our Swedish grandmother, Sigrid captures the essence of her being, and the dichotomy of Chardonnay that is the balance between elegance and power.
This is a very aromatic wine with an outstanding complex bouquet of sweet baking spices, poached pear, saffron, hazelnut, Chantilly cream, slightly toasted brioche, Meyer lemon, and stone fruits. On the palate, it is bright and youthful, with a juicy natural acidity and a fine mineral structure. This should develop beautifully over the next decade.
