813. 2012 RIESLING, Vandenberg, Tatomer. Santa Barbara, California (Half)
For Tatomer's Vandenberg "A majority of the fruit comes from Kick-on Ranch, while the rest comes from other older vineyards in the area. Typically, the selection for Vandenberg are grapes with a higher percentage of Botrytis, or Noble Rot. The result is a richer more fruit driven wine. It has more of the stone fruit flavors often associated with Riesling, nice minerality, and some slight botrytis notes often expressed as honey, or pollen. The reason the wine is called Vandenberg is because the Kick-on Ranch is located about a mile from the Air Force Base with the same name."
The opposite of the 'big bucks' boutique winery that dominates California, Graham buys in grapes as and when he can, and makes his wines in one corner of a co-operative warehouse in Santa Maria.
