If anyone could suggest any tank distilled wines, I would greatly appreciate it.  Thank You for your time and efforts with this matter.  Sincerely, Christine1000

"tank distilled"?

Wine is fermented, not distilled. But assuming you're asking about wine and not spirits, "tank" can mean a lot of things. Do you mean concrete, stainless, wood, fiberglass, plastic? 

Is there a reason you're looking for those kinds of wines, however you explain them? It would help if you gave some more information about what you're interested in, or why you came up with that description, and I'm sure there are people who'd be happy to help.

 Anyhow, welcome!

Christine, I attended a tasting a few weeks ago and learned that the Mer Soleil "Silver" Chardonnay is fermented in concrete. 

I have seen references to "Steel Fermented" wines on several labels over the years.  Typically, these are white wines.  The only on that comes to mind right not is a Chardonnay from Foley in the Sta. Rita Hills area of California.  Foley also produces an oak-aged Chardonnay.  So, look for the one that is labeled "Steel."

I think the Mer Soleil has pretty wide distribution.  So, you may be able to find it on a local store shelf.  I do not think that Foley is distributed as widely. 

I'm sure that other participants, here, will offer more ideas.  Until they do, here is another idea.  There have been conversations like this here in the Forum in the past.  If you look in the upper right corner of this screen, you'll see a box labeled "Search the Snooth Forum."  Type "Cement Fermentation" (or some variation of your choice) into that box and click on the "Search" button.  You will get several suggested previous conversations.
