Jeb Dunnuck, 94 Points 

"Aged 15 months in 15% new French oak, the 2018 Chardonnay Golden Slope ratchets up the richness and boasts a medium gold hue, awesome notes of caramelized orchard fruits, spicy wood, toasted bread, and almond paste. Playing in the medium to full-bodied side of the spectrum, it has juicy acidity, terrific purity, and a great finish. It's impressive today and will be impressive in 8-10 years as well." 

Winemaker 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!"" 

Alcohol: 13.5%
