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.
