LIQUID FARM Chardonnay, Santa Maria Valley 'La Hermana' 2013

The 2013 'La Hermana' Chardonnay is the first vintage of this bottling from Nikki and Jeff Nelson. The fruit comes from three of Santa Maria Valley's top vineyard sites (60% Bien Nacido, 33% Dierberg & 7% Maldonado). As this slowly begins to unwind in the glass it begins to reveal notes of Meyer lemon, yellow plum, orange peel, pineapple, fresh herbs and limestone scents. On the palate this is well balanced with crisp acidity while showing excellent structure and precision. Beautiful notes of citrus and hints of saline carry over onto the bright finish. Overall a superb wine, however it will be best to allow this another year to develop in the bottle. (Best 2016-2024 - May, 2015 (MD)
