Overview of the Wine
Liquid from Farming
The name Liquid Farm describes the authentic nature of wine (liquid from farming), and reflects our strong belief that all great wines start in the vineyard. It is truly all about selecting the right locations and the highest quality fruit, then allowing the varietal and regional typicity shine through from vineyard to glass.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
When putting together the final blend for the Golden Slope, Liquid Farm is looking for barrels exhibiting a bit more richness and depth than the White Hill. Once those barrels are identified, they introduce about 15% new French Oak and age the wine for 15 months prior to bottling. The resulting wine is something that reminds them of some of their favorites from Meursault.
They have endearingly nicknamed this wine "Goldilox" because of her impeccable balance of richness and fresh acidity. She is "just right!"
95 Points - Vinous
The 2019 Chardonnay Golden Slope is a super-expressive Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay laced with apricot, tangerine oil, almond, chamomile, honey and light tropical accents. The 2019 is racy and opulent, with gorgeous textural resonance and impeccable balance to match its extroverted personality. I loved it.
95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Chardonnay Golden Slope is shimmery and expressive, with scents of white peaches, spring honey and a stony undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate combines a satiny texture with tangy acidity and energetic citrusy character, and it finishes with expansive savory layers.
