From the winemaker:
This is the third release of Tendu white wine and the blend is once again based on Vermentino from the weathered, pink gravelly alluvium, very low fertility soils (Corning Series) called the Windmill Vineyard. The vineyard is located outside of Woodland in Yolo County (Dunnigan Hills AVA). It is of moderate elevation and it gets quite warm during the day. 2014 was an early, warmharvest marked by a very dry Winter and Spring. Tendu had to look outside their vineyard this year to find the acidity that they crave. Through a friend they found some racy French Colombard in Suisun Valley and Steve blended in a little lean and mean Chardonnay from the Linda Vista vineyard.
Blend: 69% Vermentino, 27% French Colombard, 4% Chardonnay
