OUT OF STOCK

Even better than the Golden Slope, the 2013 Chardonnay Four is a sensational Chardonnay that has more than a passing resemblance to a top white Burgundy. Loaded with notions of lemon curd, crushed rocks, white flowers and apple/orchard fruits, it's medium+-bodied, layered and textured, with vibrant acidity giving ample cut and focus to its texture. Raised in 25% new French oak, enjoy this classy effort over the coming decade.

Producer

The mission of Liquid Farm was simple – to support local viticulture and to create old world style wines with lower alcohol and natural high acidity that they themselves would love to drink. Their goal was to create incredible Chardonnays that would rival that of Burgundy whilst creating awareness about what happens above and below ground throughout the growing experience, and telling the story of how both are inextricably linked to wine. In order to do this successfully they would need a cool climate and were drawn to the Santa Ynez Valley, not only for the cool climate but the soil, the people and their wines. The winery is run by Nikki and Jeff who between them have years of experience in both winemaking, sales and marketing, Jeff having worked for some of the top Burgundy and Champagne houses in France and Nikki obtaining her BA in Wine and Viticulture with a focus on wine business. “Our project’s name reflects our strong belief in that philosophy. It is truly all about place in combination with the highest quality fruit and letting the varietal and regional typicity of the wine shine through from vineyard to glass… Liquid from Farming”.

Region

California is the largest and most important wine region in the US – in fact, if California were a separate country it would be the world’s fourth largest wine producer! California stretches along the west coast of the USA meaning that soils and climates vary enormously depending on the area’s altitude, latitude and proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Generally the cooler regions closer to the coast are most suited to the growing of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, whilst further inland (where the climate is much hotter) some of California’s most famous Cabernet Sauvignon wines are grown. The famous Ridge Estate is located here and produces some of the best and most sought after wines in California. If you enjoy Chardonnay, we highly recommend you take a look at Liquid Farm Winery, whose Chardonnay’s (we believe!) rival those of Burgundy.
