The Sauvignon Blanc is distinctly Frog's Leap with flavors of citrus peel and hints of stone fruit all underscored by bright minerality. For pairing, a cold plate of the briniest oysters immediately comes to mind. Yet, with its hint of sophistication and bit of gravitas, this wine will surprise and delight you suggesting that it can more than hold its own with that chicken cacciatore or subtle rabbit stew.
|Wine maker notes
|Clean, fresh, minerally... a transparent view into the soils of Rutherford. Made entirely from dry-farmed and certified organically grown grapes from our estate vineyards in Rutherford. Our Sauvignon blanc is then vinified in a way that allows the wine to retain the purity and distinctiveness of this noble variety.
|Believing that a grapevine should be grown in healthy soil that supports all the nutrient needs of the plant, Frog’s Leap has been farming organically since 1988. We also believe that most of the great and historic wines of the world have been made from non-irrigated grapevines, and to that end Frog’s Leap farms all of its vineyards without irrigation.
We adhere to the premise that the greatest wines are those that most truly reflect their soil, climate and circumstance (collectively referred to as “terroir”), and that it is the winemaker’s role to simply stand back and let the natural beauty of the grapes show through.
We don’t make great wine, we grow it.
