"Green apple, mint, white pepper and pear are some of the signatures in the 2015 Chardonnay Talley Rincon. This is a pretty, if somewhat restrained, Chardonnay from a site that tends to produce riper, richer wines." (VM)

"The intriguing nose on this bottling combines a bit of melted butterscotch and ripe white peach with a lime-spray freshness. There's a strong flash of acidity at the tip of the sip, and then come more oaky flavors, showing toasted marshmallow, browned butter and a hint of caramel. 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.
