Tatomer Vandenberg Santa Barbara Riesling 2020
This should be the mandatory benchmark tasting for relatively affordable yet hand-crafted California Riesling. Aromas of wet gravel and dried lemon peel lead into a texturally deft palate that elevates both the mineral and citrus qualities, popping with flavors of tangerine, lemon and crushed stone.

The 2020 Riesling Vandenberg is another intriguing wine in this range from Graham Tatomer. A touch of bortrytis adds textural richness. Baked apple tart, dried flowers, sage and mint give this exotic Riesling quite a bit of complexity. The finish is a bit strict, but another 6-12 months in bottle should take care of that.
100% Riesling. 12% Alc.
Santa Barbara native Graham Tatomer got into wine while he was still in high school, working a summer job at Santa Barbara Winery. Initially it was a simple job but it soon grew into a passion and now nearly two decades later, this has become Graham's life pursuit. He is focused on producing Pinot Noir from cool sites that provides lighter style with nuanced flavors and bracing acidity.
In 2008. Graham founded Tatomer with two Riesling vineyards. "My intention was to use my knowledge to make bone-dry Riesling in California unlike many of the off-dry examples in the marketplace today. I made a mere 400 cases in a small corner of a good friend's boutique winery. Since then, I have added more Riesling vineyards, as well as two Grüner Veltliner vineyards for a total production of 4,100 cases. I plan to explore the depth of my current sites; and pursue new Central Coast terroirs in the years to come."
