K&L Notes

Graham Tatomer is a rising star winemaker in Santa Barbara County, specializing in the unexpected: Riesling! Graham's wines are dead-ringers for the rich yet chiseled styles of the Wachau, thanks to his incredible talent combined with three years working under respected Austrian winemaker Emmerich Knoll. Our domestic team loved the wines so much on their Central Coast buy trip a few years back, they brought them in immediately for us to try, and we're hooked! We've stocked them ever since. These are wines for serious Riesing lovers, and Graham Tatomer is a winemaker to watch.

    Maybe my head was in the clouds but I can't say I've heard much about Tatomer, before now. Boy have I been missing out! This is everything I love about Riesling! All the dried flowers, citrus, and stone fruits, are just remarkable. There's plenty of minerality on the palate and a noticeable touch of botrytis. What a lovely wine with plenty of grip and intensity! This is easy going down so grab a few bottles!

    Another stunner from Tatomer, this Riesling has beautiful honeyed and white flower aromatics, with tangerine and apricot fruits, vibrant acidity, salinity, flinty notes and a touch of botrytis. It is a wonderfully textured, driving, and delicious wine that will go make you think there is a hole in your glass!

    The gorgeous Tatomer Vandenberg Riesling is in danger of redefining how we look at Santa Barbara County. It's incredible that they've achieved such depth and a complexity despite the drought. The color is a lovely light yellow. This has a beautiful nose of wet stones, lemony citrus peel and flinty petrol. The palate is just bursting with lemony acid, tons of texture and a graceful persistence. Somehow it's both perfectly SoCal and wonderfully Riesling! A great bottle and more proof that Tatomer is up to something special.
