HMR is the abbreviated name of Hoffman Mountain Ranch, the original vineyard planted by Dr. Stanley Hoffman. This historic property dating from the early 1960s is devoted exclusively to Burgundian grape varieties, rarely found in Paso Robles.

Visually showing a clear straw appearance, this wine emanates varietal purity and a sense of place; pronounced aromatics launch straight into crushed sea shells, white flowers, lemon verbena, and clementine zest. A hint of cantaloupe melon speaks to the new world climate, while sea foam and chalk indicate Chardonnay grown in limestone soils. Vibrant flavors reveal a filigree of yellow apple, yellow plum, and pear, which sit atop structural building blocks lended from the calcareous strata. A subtle hint of almond praline rounds out and tightens this focused finish. Overall, a forward and friendly wine that grabs your attention. Drink through 2025.
