WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

 

White gold with a green chlorophyll hue, this Willamette Valley Chardonnay has a very complex aromatic perfume of Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, toasted brioche, citrus flowers, sugar cookie and a sweet tarragon, mint and saffron herbal note. Texturally magnificent and accented with a heady, floral perfume of white flowers and spiced crème fraîche, this wine captures the brightness and elegance of this vintage.

TASTING NOTES:

Here is top-tier Oregon fruit perfectly handled, so as to express place, variety and winemaker in equal balance. Tree fruits and apple skins, buoyed by a mouthfeel accented with creamy lees, follow up with a light pat of butter. The distinguishing minerality of past vintages is here as well, and as good as ever.

Editor's Choice

-Wine enthusiast, 95 pts.

Vivid straw-yellow. A suave, intensely perfumed bouquet features fresh pear, tangerine, iodine, buttered toast and smoky minerals that show superb definition and spicy lift. Penetrating, concentrated and sharply focused; a core of juicy acidity supports powerful orchard and citrus fruit and honeysuckle flavors that deepen through the midpalate. Rich but lithe as well, with superb finishing energy and mineral-driven tenacity. Drinking window: 2021 - 2027.

- Vinous, 95 pts.

Drawing together selected barrels from three of Bergström’s estate vineyards, the 2016 Sigrid is a study in contrasts, a balance between leesy caramel notes and broad fruit accents of apple and pear, with a whiff of fennel frond. The flavors seem rich, even opulent, until the texture crisps up, the weight dissipating in a wash of crunchy acid on the finish. Quite a performance, almost operatic, calling for Zuni’s roast chicken.

Impressive complexity here. This has a very taut, refined and integrated feel with a tight and flinty resolve on the palate. Mouthwatering finish. There’s a lot to like here.

- James Suckling, 94 pts.

The 2016 Chardonnay Sigrid has fleshy green apple and green pear on the nose with notes of white flower, cream and toast. Medium-bodied with a wicked line of crushed rock minerality in the mouth, it has very bright, juicy acidity, fleshing out on the long citrus and mineral-laced finish. Lovely delicate, bright style.

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 92 pts.

Refined and sleek, with lush pear and quince flavors accented by toasted spice notes that build richness and complexity on the long finish.
