This small winery in the Santa Rita Hills is the brain child of Jeff and Nikki Nelson. Their wine maker is Brandon Sparks-Gillis (the “man” behind the Dragonette success). Their wine-style is based and named in honor of the chalky white hills of Chablis and diatomaceous earth of the Sannta Rita Hills.
Liquid Farm 2013 “White Hills” Chardonnay, Santa Rita Hills
This Chablis style Chardonnay highlights the unique salinity that comes from the ancient soils of the Santa Rita Hills. Sourced from the great Zotovich (Brewer-Clifton, Diatom, Paul Lato), Kessler-Haak & Rita’s Crown vineyards this wine (named in honor of the chalky white hills of Chablis and diatomaceous earth of Sta. Rita Hills) offers a gorgeous nose of perfumed peaches and nectarines. Medium to full in body, this wine is crisp in texture and depth, with very expressive aromas and flavors on both nose and palate. Hints of lemon curd, pear, fresh citrus and a touch of tamarind. The minerality is not overpowering, but clean and seductive! You think expensive French, but get a well-priced Californian instead! This 300 case production is of incredible value and will sell out quick!
