Winemaker Tasting Notes
Light floral notes and sweet citrus greet the nose. The flavors highlight green apple, Key lime, Meyer lemon and a wet-stony minerality. This has a very smooth texture with lively, balanced acidity.

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.
