Edna Valley

Tatomer "Oliver's Talley" Riesling '17

Graham Tatomer’s interest in wine began when he was just a teenager working at Santa Barbara Winery. It wasn’t until years later that a local job grew into a passion. Lafond Winery and its vineyard, home to among the oldest Riesling plantings in the region, is where the passion sparked. Not long after, he decided to move to the Wachau in Austria, and found a lifelong mentorship, Emmerich Knoll. Graham received lessons in balancing the pressure of a family legacy with the continuous progress and renewal presented by each passing vintage. This would soon become the foundation in which Tatomer would be built upon. Today, Graham makes wines of clear Austrian derivation – it is clear in style and with his choice of varietals to showcase, however, they distinctly belong to the terroir of Santa Barbara. Graham often picks with multiple passes in the interest of celebrating diverse textures and expressions of flavor. Working with varietals of Austria, includes one of the most important: Riesling. Graham works with two surviving sites of original Riesling plantings in California, and has continued in the preservation of a varietal that thrives just as beautifully as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay here in Edna Valley and other various parts of the Central Coast. The wine has lower alcohol levels and ripping acidity with great natural textures and lush, ripe citrus fruit. Only 50 cases were produced of this cuvée, which is a newer addition to Tatomer's lineup.
