Wine Review: Holman Ranch 2012 Estate Grown Pinot Gris @holmanranch

Electric wine, think summer downpour, ozone and lightning in a bottle!

You want this wine. I want more of this wine. Order the Holman Ranch 2012 Estate Grown Pinot Gris when you see it on the menu or buy it direct from the winery. Highly Recommended + Great Value.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Pale gold with green highlights.
Nose: Essence of stone fruit, mineral, ginger skin, a spicy floral note with a hint of pineapple.
Palate: Fresh, mineral, unripe peach pith, dry slate mid-palate, almost tart, with lemon peel on the clean uber dry finish. Yowza! Screams for raw oysters. Would suit soft creamy cheese, bread dipped in olive oil, and fried chicken. Grabbed my attention.

Day Two: Still crisp, good acidity, tingle on teeth, vibrant on the tongue, focused with a long satisfying tart lemon/tangerine with slate finish. So my speed, craving BLT and Mac and Cheese.
A satisfying crisp, dry wine. Highly Recommended + Great Value.

Closure: Real cork
