The Sigrid Chardonnay is Bergström 's flagship white, with the grapes coming from the finest vineyards in the area. Their aim; to redefine cool climate American Chardonnay.

92/100 - Sigrid Chardonnay, named for Bergström's grandmother, is a barrel selection of the best fruit from the Bergström, Silice, and Gregory Ranch vineyards. The wine represents the Bergström vision: barrel-fermented, with full malolactic conversion, this is rich and dense, yet there is still a lively acidity to bring the wine back into balance. - Charles Curtis MW, Decanter 
17/20 - Bright pale straw. Relatively rich on the nose, in the way of a richer Meursault. Hint of honeysuckle on the nose and then fine, refined, very refreshing and sleek on the palate. Ready to enjoy already but with real structure so it will almost certainly improve in bottle. Long. - Jancis Robinson 
92/100 - The 2018 Chardonnay Sigrid offers bright citrus and orchard fruits on the nose with a minerally undercurrent. The light-bodied palate is fresh, gently rounded and pure with savory tones and a long, uplifted finish. - Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate
94/100 - Barrel fermented and put through complete malolactic fermentation, Sigrid is full and rich. The supple mouthfeel brings on lively flavors of clover, apple, fresh green herbs and a lick of butter. Elegant and detailed from start to finish, just a gentle touch of toast trails out on the lingering finish. - Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast 


This is a very aromatic wine with an outstanding complex bouquet of sweet baking spices, poached pear, saffron, hazelnut, Chantilly cream, slightly toasted brioche, and stone fruits. On the palate, it is bright and youthful, with a juicy natural acidity and a fine mineral structure.
After harvesting each of the estate vineyards by hand, the fruit is fermented separately in small French oak barrels, where it undergoes full malolactic fermentation and ageing 'sur-lie' for 18 months.
Named after their Swedish grandmother, 'Sigrid' captures the essence of her being, and the dichotomy of Chardonnay that is the balance between elegance and power.
Pairs nicely alongside seafood in a butter sauce, or grilled chicken.  
This wine should develop beautifully over the next decade.
