Jeff and Nicki Nelson started Liquid farm out of frustration at the difficulty in finding Californian wines made in the style they wanted to drink. They wanted to drink lower alcohol, restrained wines with terroir driven characteristics and too often they were presented with overly ripe fruit bombs.
Minerality was a crucial element and this meant the use of little if any new oak. The search for vineyards began and in 2009 the first four barrels of Liquid Farm were made.
The Golden Slope is their take on Meursault with broader, rounder flavours and aromas. This does not come from the use of new oak with only around 15% used when making this cuvée.
The Four is their homage to their very first four barrels in 2009. This is very much their flagship wine and will improve with age.
