2015 Bergström "Sigrid" Willamette Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1346815 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The full-treatment Chardonnay with tons of cloves, vanilla and spices but so much fruit in the form of ripe peaches, papaya, citrus rind, preserved lemons and whipped cream. Full-bodied with so much dense yet tangy tropical fruit in the form of pineapple and guava flavors. Sweeping acidity and a long, intense finish. Not for the faint of heart, but boy does this pack a punch. Drink from 2019. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Chardonnay Sigrid conjures notions of peaches, pink grapefruit and green guava with hints of toasted almonds, chalk dust, coriander seed and baker's yeast. Medium-bodied with a racy backbone cutting through the silken texture, it delivers a wonderful intensity of citrus, tropical and savory flavors, finishing long and layered. (LPB) Inner quote mark (8/2017)

95 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Sigrid is Josh Bergström’s barrel selection of lots from five biodynamically farmed estate vineyards, and it’s his most dramatic white wine. In 2015 this Chardonnay’s shades of fruit and savor, its layers and textural breadth are on display, all of it propelled by an edgy, acid-driven freshness. Initially, the lees and reduction will take you in a savory direction, but with air the wine appears to fill with autumnal light. The flavors of ripe apple, golden pear and mineral lees become fuller and more focused, interwoven in what seems like an intricate, dramatic and, frankly, gorgeous pattern.

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale yellow. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes mineral-accented pear, orange zest and jasmine scents, along with a deeper suggestion of honey. Energetic, sharply focused citrus and orchard fruit flavors stain the palate while showing zero fat. A sexy floral nuance emerges steadily as the wine opens up, as do hints of saffron and toasted brioche. Impressively concentrated yet nervy; the long, focused finish features lingering floral and mineral notes. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This succulent wine is saturated with rich citrus flavors. Grapefruit, lemon, lime and pineapple notes combine while its 18 months in barrel contributes a layer of buttery toast. (PG) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

K&L Notes

Bergström’s flagship Chardonnay is handcrafted from two of their five estate vineyards (Silice and Gregory Ranch) as well as from two of Oregon’s greatest Chardonnay vineyard sites (Temperance Hill and Anderson Family Vineyard). It is picked early to capture acidity and matured in French oak barrels for 12 months before undergoing another six months of aging in stainless-steel tank on the lees.
