Winemaker Tasting Notes
Aromas of starfruit, lemon leaf, gooseberries, tarte tatin and honeysuckle eagerly greet the taster. The palate shows bright yet balanced acidity with notes of green apple, Meyer lemon, pear and Honeydew melon.

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.
