About This Item

Overview: Liquid Farm was founded in 2009 by old world wine enthusiasts Jeff Nelson and Nikki Pallesen, who preferred the lower alcohol, cooler climate and more terroir-driven characteristics of European wines to the riper, fruit-focused, higher alcohol levels found in many new world wines. They focus on specific vineyard sites known for earthy, mineral-driven Chardonnay from the cool climates and ancient soils of California's Sta. Rita Hills in Santa Barbara County.   

Styled in the manner of the great wines of the Côte d’Or, the Golden Slope is a layered and textural Chardonnay with a kiss of new oak from top vineyards sites throughout the Sta. Rita Hills. The wine is made up of nearly 40% Clos Pepe, with the remaining thirds of fruit from La Rinconada, Bentrock, and Kessler-Haak. The wine was barrel fermented in neutral (85%) and new (15%) French barrels from Tonnellerie Damy. Like all the cuvées made by Jeff Nelson and winemaker James Sparks, the Golden Slope is a small production, sustainably farmed wine, made without the use of additions or manipulations.

Tasting Notes: Lemon curd, honeycrisp apple, Asian pear, vanilla, biscotti, Round and rich mouthfeel, but with a vibrant acidity that promotes balance and freshness. 

Pairing: Lobster Mac 'n Cheese, Chicken Cordon Bleu, Rotisserie Pork Loin

Points: 94, Jeb Dunnuck

Format / ABV: 750 ml/13.5%
