  7. While the pork is resting, pour the wine into the pan; bring to a simmer while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
  8. Simmer for 2 minutes, then add the apples, chicken stock, vinegars, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar.
  9. Cook and stir until the apples are tender, about 10 minutes. 
  10. Stir cornstarch mixture into the simmering sauce to thicken.
  11. Cook and stir 1 minute more until the sauce thickens and is no longer cloudy.
  12. Slice the pork tenderloin into ¼ inch thick slices, and arrange on a serving platter. 
  13. Pour the Sauce with the apples over meat to serve.
