2016 La Hermana Chardonnay

2016 La Hermana Chardonnay
Santa Maria Valley

With a nod to the deep Spanish roots of the town of Santa Maria, we are excited to introduce to you La Hermana, the first "sister" to our Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnays, hailing from the sisterly, neighboring AVA of Santa Maria Valley

AGING: 100% neutral barrel fermentation & aging. Ten months in barrel.

PROFILE: Fresh linen, zesty minerality, marzipan, refreshing herbs & flowers, taut, polished. This bottling exhibits a bit more tropical fruit than its Sta. Rita Hills counterparts.

FOOD PAIRING: Halibut or scallop crudo; cheese and charcuterie with pickled vegetables

Antonio Galloni - 93 points "The 2016 Chardonnay La Hermana is bright, focused and tightly wound. Citrus, white flowers and crushed rocks are finely sculpted in this super-expressive Chardonnay. La Hermana is the most tense, wiry wine in the Liquid Farm range. It is also a great example of what Santa Maria Chardonnay is all about." - Santa Barbara Dreamin' (Sep 2018)

Jeb Dunnuck - 95 points "The 2016 Chardonnay La Hermana offers a slightly more angular profile, yet also has more density and depth. Stone fruits, toasted nuts, crushed rocks, and brioche notes all emerge from the glass and it's beautifully balanced, has bright acidity, and a great finish. It's a beautiful, classic Chardonnay that will age gracefully." (Oct 2018)
