      ABOUT THIS WINE

      This Pinot Noir is a blend of multiple clones and vineyards around the Sta. Rita Hills appellation of Santa Barbara. All the vineyards are sustainably farmed, hand-harvested, and one of them (Duvarita) is certified biodynamic. Each clone is harvested separately and fermented in small batches. Winemaker Graham Tatomer is a fan of whole-cluster fermentation due to the aromatic lift and pallet feel it gives, so about 50% of the wine was fermented this way. All lots were aged for 12 months in neutral French oak, bottled unfined and unfiltered.

      ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

      Tatomer is first an individual and rigorous endeavor; in its particular commitments and breadth, it is by and large a peerless pursuit in this small corner of California. Graham Tatomer’s devotion to California Riesling, and Grüner in turn, began earnestly with the founding of his eponymous winery in 2008, though he first engaged with the variety long before. A gig at Santa Barbara Winery, which began in high school, introduced Graham to the Lafond Winery and its vineyard, home to among the oldest Riesling plantings in the region.

      Today, Graham makes wines of a clear Austrian pedigree – they are haltingly alluring in their presentation of power, precision, and detail – but their tenor is wholly idiosyncratic: they belong to the soils and climes of Santa Barbara. He has identified superior sites for these two white varieties, and has made strides, in concert with their farmers, to dictate their farming – even when receiving mere fractions of their yields. He often picks with multiple passes in the interest of celebrating diverse textures and expressions of flavor, and sorts even further to promote purity and singular bottlings. What’s more, he enjoys the region’s favored varieties, too, and can stand alongside the best of his peers in producing tensile, delicate Pinot Noir – in minute quantities.
