Grape - Cortese
Where - Dunnigan Hills, California, USA
What - California is renowned for producing large volumes of Chardonnay. Rarely do the smaller European regional varieties get a look in, but the Tendu Cortese seeks to change that. Steve Matthiasson selects small parcels of sustainably grown varieties. High quality juice is vinifed in old neutral barrels and then further aged. Each wine is bottled in lightweight, American made bottles and capped with eco-friendly, biodegradable corks.
Like its red counterpart, the Tendu Cortese seeks to be a bright, fresh white perfect for the Californian sunshine. This is a vibrant, zesty white with notes of lime leaf, citrus, tropical fruit, herb and citrus blossom.
Zesty, racy, citrus. Vegan. Organic. Low intervention. 12% ABV.
