Up-and-coming Liquid Farm's first vintage was the 2009--a tiny production of only 50 cases--which sold out in less than a month but still made its way on to some of LA's most fashionable and respected restaurant wine lists. Liquid Farm is a super small producer focused on creating low-alcohol, Old World style Chardonnay with varietal typicity from the limestone soils of California's Sta. Rita Hills.

The outfit has been recently highlighted (April, 2013) by the Los Angeles Times and by Eric Asimov of the New York Times in an article titled, "Santa Barbara Redefines Chardonnay," so get your 2011's while we've got 'em. Sourcing from Rita's Crown, Clos Pepe & Zotovich vineyards and with the help of the winemaking team at Dragonette Cellars, Liquid Farm produced 340 cases of "Golden Slope" in 2011.

Vintage notes from the winery: "The richer of the two bottlings, with a small amount of new barrel to add warmer tones and a more voluptuous texture, all the while maintaining restraint and intense structure...tamarind, orange pith, mineral, macadamia nut, spiced pear, ginger tea, fresh almond croissant."

92 pts. Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Light yellow-gold. Heady, complex scents of poached pear, lemon curd, toasty lees and iodine, with a bright floral quality gaining strength with air. Sappy, penetrating orchard fruit and candied ginger flavors stain the palate, with notes of anise, honey and smoky minerals contributing complexity. Powerful yet lithe chardonnay with superb finishing focus and spicy persistence. (Nov. 2013)
