TATOMER RIESLING "VANDENBERG", SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 2012 375ml HALF-BOTTLE
Light, green-tinged yellow. High-pitched, mineral-driven scents of lemon, lime, orange zest and succulent herbs, with a suave floral note building in the glass. Silky and appealingly fresh, offering deeply pitched citrus and orchard fruit flavors lifted and sharpened by chalky minerality. Finishes pure and precise, with impressive length and lingering floral character.
Austria-trained, Santa Barbara County-based winemaker Graham Tatomer is causing a Riesling renaissance, thanks to wines like this with aromas of orange blossom, citrus rinds and hints of gasoline. With flavors of toasted nuts, lemon juice, tangerine pith and chalky grip, this is a great canvas for cellar aging to paint a remarkable wine. Drink 2018–2030. Date published 4/1/2015 Matt Kettmann
