Wine of the Week – Holman Ranch 2012 Estate Grown Virgin Chardonnay

This distinctive California Chardonnay from Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley, 12 miles inland from the Pacific coast, is unoaked,with excellent minerality and full of citrus and floral notes. The finish is clean and crisp. Founder Jarman Lowder hopes it’s a vintage that will be “part of occasions that mark time with memories that are cherished forever.” It’s excellent on even an unmemorable evening as an accompaniment to a light meal!
