Tendu by Steve Matthiasson 2018
100% Cortese, this white originates from the Lost Slough vineyard, located on the Sacramento River Delta - a site that benefits from cool breezes and good diurnal temperature variation, meaning the grapes retain excellent freshness.
Fresh and fruity, but with a pleasant, deceptive oomph to the palate - orange peel, soft spice and stone fruits - fuzzy apricots and peaches with a hint of texture. Like all of Steve’s wines, it overdelivers, and is a delightful expression of this Italian grape.
The Tendu brand was created to produce the ultimate Californian bbq wine - high quality fruit, hand crafted to create something fun, fresh and easy drinking. Tendu translates as tense, and these are vibrant wines, just the easy drinking ticket!
