Frog's Leap Sauvignon Blanc 2015
They say good things come in small packages and this has never been truer than in the case of our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc. Some argue that the third year of well-below average rainfall is the culprit but, ironically it is more likely that the cool, damp weather during pollination was truly to blame. Whatever the cause, the yield in 2015 was significantly lower than average. Looking on the bright side; however, lower yields usually go hand in hand with intense aromas and concentrated flavors. This certainly is the case with our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc. Intense aromas of white flowers with hints of ripe peach literally fill the glass and elevate your expectation of the crisp, minerally flavors to follow. Certainly ready to enjoy now but I believe a little patience-perhaps a few months or a year-will yield a wine that can hold its own with any of the great aromatic whites of the world. I'm saving a bottle for next fall's crop of porcini mushrooms roasted with some nice stuffed quail.
