FRESH, DRY WHITES

Fresh, dry whites - GRUNER VELTLINER, Meeresboden, Tatomer. Santa Barbara, California

2016 GRUNER VELTLINER, Meeresboden, Tatomer. Santa Barbara, Cali.

Bin: 115
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Graham Tatomer is based in Santa Barbara County - the increasingly sought-after area (north of LA, south of San Francisco) where many of the best new-wave California producers are making modern, 'elegant' wines.
Meeresboden, meaning ocean soil, is a blend of John Sebastiano, and Kick-on Ranch vineyards in Santa Barbara County all grown on ancient ocean deposit soils.
Grape Variety: 100% Gruner, fermented mainly in stainless steel, just a small percentage in large old oak barrels.
Producer: Graham is a brilliant and unique addition to the California wine scene. He trained at the renowned Brewer-Clifron winery in Santa Barbara but also spent 2 years with the famous Knoll winery in the Wachau, Austria. Starting solo, he decided to buy up some of the few patches of Gruner Veltliner and Riesling in his area - and to encourage growers to plant more - as well as working with some (less unique but equally fascinating) Pinot Noir.
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.
Old Bridge Rating: Brilliant (and rare) imitation of the classic Austrian grape. Dry, spicy, elegant, fine.
