In collaboration with Graham Tatomer London Cru have released a cool climate Californian Chardonnay in Santa Barbara. The vineyard site in Sierra Madre was hand selected by Graham and Alex and the wine made and bottled by Graham. The wine arrived in the UK and was brought straight to the London Cru winery for the much anticipated launch party.
Central Coast Chardonnay replaces Sandhi's Santa Barbara County label, sourcing additional fruit from vineyards outside of the AVA. This extra flexibility has given Sashi the vineyard variation to create a very complex wine that punches well above the broad label term 'Central Coast'. Vibrant acidity works in harmony with nutty aromas and dried flowers.
Graham Tatomer is a rising star winemaker in Santa Barbara County, specialising in the unexpected: Riesling! These are wines for serious Riesling lovers, and this is certainly a winemaker to watch.
This vibrant, balanced, superior Chardonnay is a great example of quality wine from the Santa Rita Hills AVA. Blended from various vineyards where a cool breeze from the nearby ocean helps to develop complexity and flavour.
Graham Tatomer is definitely a Californian winemaker to watch. This stunning, very slightly off dry white, proves that it’s not only the Austrian and German big boys who can produce great Riesling.
