    Winemaker Notes

    Enticing aromas of citrus flower, yellow apple, lemon curd, key lime pie and wildflower honey leap from the glass. The palate is juicy and round with flavors redolent of Meyer lemon, honeydew melon, nutmeg, slight allspice, and bread dough with a pleasing finish.

    Pairs well with seared sea scallops, crab/avocado salad, and roasted butternut squash.

    Tony Rynders squeezes a full bladder press of cellar cred into his wholly owned new brand, Tendril Wine Cellars. Tony's professional wine experience began in 1989 in the lab at Mirassou. He then went on to graduate from UC Davis in 1993 with a Masters Degree in Viticulture and Enology. Next, off on a world tour of practical experience in Carneros, Friuli, Tuscany and South Australia. Then, assistant winemaker at Argyle in Oregon and red winemaker at Hogue in Washington. All of this finally prepares him for ten years as head winemaker at Domaine Serene where he collected more 90+ scores from Wine Spectator than any other winemaker over the same ten years. In the same period The Wine Advocate named Domaine Serene one of Oregon's two "Outstanding" producers while Wine & Spirits awarded Winery of the Year for five consecutive years. Amazingly, during this time Tony oversaw the growing of Domaine Serene from a 2500 to a 25,000 case super-premium winery.

    At Tendril, Tony has taken a deep breath and scaled way back. While quality is at the uncompromising high level one would expect, quantity is limited to around 500 cases per year and to Pinot Noir only. Similar to Mike Januik's story in Washington State, there's hardly a great grower in Oregon who would not be happy to provide Tony with whatever fruit he desires, and the best possible fruit attainable he does indeed get. Though he managed a large cellar staff at Domaine Serene, Tony and assistant winemaker Samantha Poehlman, also a Domaine Serene alum, perform every task at Tendril themselves. The results have been breathtakingly beautiful.

    One of Pinot Noir’s most successful New World outposts, the Willamette Valley is the largest and most important AVA in Oregon. With a continental climate moderated by the influence of the Pacific Ocean, it is perfect for cool-climate viticulture and the production of elegant wines.

    Mountain ranges bordering three sides of the valley, particularly the Chehalem Mountains, provide the option for higher-elevation vineyard sites.

    The valley's three prominent soil types (volcanic, sedimentary and silty, loess) make it unique and create significant differences in wine styles among its vineyards and sub-AVAs. The iron-rich, basalt-based, Jory volcanic soils found commonly in the Dundee Hills are rich in clay and hold water well; the chalky, sedimentary soils of Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville encourage complex root systems as vines struggle to search for water and minerals. In the most southern stretch of the Willamette, the Eola-Amity Hills sub-AVA soils are mixed, shallow and well-drained. The Hills' close proximity to the Van Duzer Corridor (which became its own appellation as of 2019) also creates grapes with great concentration and firm acidity, leading to wines that perfectly express both power and grace.

    Though Pinot noir enjoys the limelight here, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc and Chardonnay also thrive in the Willamette. Increasing curiosity has risen recently in the potential of others like Grüner Veltliner, Chenin blanc and Gamay.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
