Winemaker Tasting Notes
Complex and floral nose showing fresh quince, white peach, crème brûlée, red currant, and salted caramel. The palate is rich and full bodied, displaying lots of spiced pear, white pineapple, Galia melon, honeydew, and cream with a long, exotic finish.

Tendril wines are made “low and slow,” just like great food: we give them time to reach their full potential at the winery, aging 16 months minimum in barrel and 6-18 months more in bottle before release. If you prefer aging, 3-10 years from vintage date is ideal for Pretender. Serve chilled at 50-55F or after 30 minutes in the fridge.
