- Low stock - 11 items left
PRODUCER: Since 1999, Bergström Wines had been working towards our vision of stewarding naturally and responsibly farmed, estate vineyard terroirs that best represent the diverse appellations of our world-class Willamette Valley. Our Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays, and Syrahs are a three-dimensional vinous tour of our beautiful state’s ancient volcanic and marine sedimentary hillsides.
WINEMAKING: 100% whole-cluster fermentation in open-top, temperature-controlled stainless steel fermentation tanks. Native fermentation where possible. Inoculation with selected native Burgundian strains of yeast where needed. 228L French oak cooperage. > 15% new oak. 100% malolactic and alcoholic fermentation (no residual sugars or malic acids). 12 months élevage in barrel. No fining. Polishing filtration.
TASTING NOTE: A lovely, electric, dark ruby colour. An aromatic potpourri loaded with bright and fresh raspberry, red currant, pomegranate and red cherry fruits. In concert with the fruit aromas, grilled meats, toasty oak, incense, sweet French tarragon and a floral bouquet. Silky and vibrant on the palate, with youthful energy and depth that echoes the red fruits of the aromatic profile, especially the ripe raspberry flavours. Super fun to drink now and will be very versatile with numerous food pairings. A shining star of the vintage.
