2013 Liquid Farm "Golden Slope" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

SKU #1194002 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Chardonnay Golden Slope is incredibly inviting, with superb balance between some of its more overt, oily textures and the underlying minerality that lies in the background. A host of white orchard fruit, apricot, honey and spice nuances open up as this plush, silky Chardonnay shows off its alluring, racy personality. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A big, rich Chardonnay that does everything right, the 2013 Chardonnay Golden Slope from the team at Liquid Farm gives up lots of toast and brioche to go with ripe orchard fruits, buttered citrus and a touch of white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, balanced and clean, with a great mix of laser-like focus and building richness, it's a serious Chardonnay that will evolve nicely for at least 5-6 years. The elevage here was 15 months in just 12% new French oak. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Rich fruit - pineapple and toffee. Dry, layered finish. Rounded, long, substantial. A big CA wine but with nuance. (RH) Inner quote mark (2/2016)

K&L Notes

The famed Côte d'Or in Burgundy translates to "golden slope" - and serves as the inspiration for this Burgundian-styled Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay. The wine sees 14 months barrel aging, with only 12% new wood. According to the winery, notes in this wine include: "smoky minerals, iodine, lemon curd, heady orchard fruit, ginger tea, liquid sunshine."
