Winemaker Tasting Notes
Enticing aromas of citrus flower, yellow apple, lemon curd, key lime pie and wildflower honey leap from the glass. The palate is juicy and round with flavors redolent of meyer lemon, honeydew melon, nutmeg, slight allspice, and bread dough with a pleasing 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, 3-12 years from vintage date is ideal for our Chardonnay. Serve chilled at 50-55F or after 30 minutes in the fridge.
