Smoky minerals, iodine, lemon curd, heady orchard fruit, ginger tea, liquid sunshine.
`The Golden Slope Chardonnay from Liquid Farm is impressive once again in 2013. This is a blend of 6 different vineyards across the Santa Rita Hills (Bentrock, Rita`s Crown, Clos Pepe, Zotovich, Kessler-Haak and Rancho Esperanza). It offers intoxicating aromas of lemon curd, and white orchard fruits, laced with flinty mineral, and chalk. The soft and smooth aromas are followed by complex and zesty infusion of citrus Asian pear, and a hint of grapefruit. The finish is precise and elegant with lots of fresh minerality. This continues to open up with each second of air and should continue to develop with some additional time in bottle. (Best 2015-2024)` 94 pts, The International Wine Report
