Much of the complexity and style of the 2011 Frog's Leap Chardonnay comes from the unique combination of barrel fermentation followed by aging in concrete vats. The result is a wine with compelling flavors and a bright crisp mouthfeel. Lightly scented citrus and stone fruit aromatics are followed by flavors of apricot, wet-stone and vanilla. Seductive and elegant, you will be tempted to a second and third sip.
The beauty of this wine immediately opens up culinary possibilities rarely found in bigger California Chardonnays: crusted halibut, oysters (prepared any way), oven-roasted chicken breast, or fresh Dungeness crab with some hot garlic butter. It's the perfect dinner companion. You will not be disappointed!
