The 2014 Frog's Leap Chardonnay greets you with aromas of wet stone and white peaches layered with delicate notes of honeysuckle. Flavors of grapefruit and lemongrass lead to a taut mouthfeel that touches on layers of flint and toasted coconut. Refreshingly crisp with tart acidity, this wine has a clean bright finish that lingers on the palate. A wine that truly lives up to our mantra about great chardonnays
|Wine maker notes
|Carneros Chardonnay at its very best: pure, clean, fresh, restrained, drinkable. A unique combination of barrel fermentation followed by extended “sur lie” aging in concrete vats. Balance and restraint in a varietal not always associated with these traits.
|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.
