Frog's Leap Chardonnay 2011
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
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!
Ripe and generously oaked on the palate, this Chardonnay has flavors of pineapple jam, buttered toast and buttered popcorn. It's brightened with crisp acidity.
