The Bergström Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir is probably one of the best Pinot Noirs on this planet…
Bergström’s story began in 1999 when Josh and Caroline returned to the Willamette Valley where his parents had been sowing and ploughing under rich cover crops to revitalise the soil and prepare the land for the vines. During his first year back from France, Josh planted vines and purchased some grapes from other vineyards to make the first vintage of Bergström wine.
The estate has more than 36 acres under vine, all of which are organically certified. Additionally, since 2000, the farming has been biodynamic and the results have impressed with an extra degree of vitality and freshness visible. The Bergström Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir is a rich and silky smooth wine, with concentrated dark fruits with soft tannins and great acidity.
Organic and Biodynamically Certified. This estate is farmed without the use of Chemicals. Shows good potential for ageing; could cellar for up to ten years.
