Tantara Estate has been producing top notch quality pinot noir and chardonnay since 1997. Located in Santa Maria Valley, wine maker Rick Hill brings loads of unique experience, haling originally from Australia were he earned his degree in Wine Science. This Santa Maria chardonnay is extremely bright on the nose with aromas of lemon mousse, coconut milk and white peach. The bouquet is cut by a chalky minerality and zippy acidity . There is a slight herbaceous touch to the sip, which is a tad riper than expected, with mouth-watering lemon cake and cream flavors to finish.
Pairings: Seared scallops, oysters, sea bass, lemon caper chicken, cream sauce pasta, heirloom tomato salad, watercress, yellow squash soup
