Bergström Old Stones Oregon Chardonnay 2013

White Wine from USA - Oregon
A stand-out chardonnay from Oregon's Bergström. Mineral and lemon notes on the nose develop on the textured palate. The oak is well balanced and offers great support to the bright acidity and citrus flavours. A very fine example showing that Oregon can produce world-class chardonnays, and which will age gracefully.

Bergström Vineyards

This estate, established on 13 acres by John and Karen Bergström, now encompasses covers 84 acres of vines over five vineyard sites amid the Dundee Hills at the northern end of Willamette Valley. Today their son Josh is managing the estate and make the wine here, making superb use of the varied soils and terroirs. Over the years the family have planted a variety of pinot noir and chardonnay clones among the oaks and Douglas firs which surround the vineyard, and they farm with an acute awareness of their beautiful environment, nurturing their vines biodynamically, without the use of chemicals of any kind.

Oregon Vintage 2013

A hot, dry summer was in some places cooled by late rains that actually helped diligent growers to cool things down and draw out the ripening period as those who gambled on better weather arriving in October were rewarded. A very fine vintage all told, with good, concentrated wines.

Josh and Caroline Bergstrom returned to Oregon from France in 1999 to run their family winery set up by his Swedish parents John and Karen.  Their diverse range of chardonnays and pinot noirs from 84 acres of iron rich red clay soils are some of the best Oregon wines on our shelves.  Tasted alongside Californian chardonnay, this has great elegance, fruit concentration and minerality.

Lemony, creamy, withwell-balanced oak but also a certain saline quality, it is a fine example ofNew World cooler climate finesse. Give it five years and it should develop arare complexity.
