"The 2015 Chardonnay Dierberg offers lovely focus and energy to match its mid-weight, gracious personality. The flavors are nicely sculpted in this understated Santa Maria Chardonnay. Winemaker Ariki Hill has done a terrific job in expressing the personality of this site." (VM)

"Extremely clean on the nose, pure aromas of lemon mousse, coconut milk and white peach are cut by a chalky minerality and fresh lemongrass scent in this bottling. There's a pencil shaving touch to the sip, which is a tad riper than expected, with mouth-watering lemon cake and cream flavors. Matt Kettmann" (WE)

Winery Notes:
Since 1997, Tantara has been dedicated to producing the very finest Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah. Located in the beautiful Santa Maria Valley (Santa Barbara County), our grapes are sourced from premium vineyards from the Central Coast. From volunteering for our first harvest in 1997 to becoming our full time winemaker in 2011, Rick Hill has helped us perfect the Tantara wine profile that we enjoy today. Rick, a native of New Zealand, graduated from Charles Sturt University in Australia with his degree in Wine Science prior to moving to California to pursue his passion for winemaking.
