Tendu White Wine 2013, California, US
Writing in the Los Angeles Times Irene Virbila was adamant on her selection of the Tendu White stating you “gotta have some whites”, adding, “go with a blend, Sauvignon Blanc or, if you must have Chardonnay, one made in a leaner style. Rosés make great picnic fare too, and this year California is turning out some terrific examples.”
Virbila described the wine as a “terrific little white wine” from one of California’s “most interesting” winemakers, Steve Matthiesson.
She said: “His day job? Vineyard manager, which is why he’s got a certain talent in sourcing fruit for this dry, cool-toned white all over California. I love the big 1-liter bottle closed with a white cap like a soda pop. With its notes of grapefruit and citrus rind, Tendu white wine is a lot of wine for the money.”
