Description

The beautiful aromatics of the 2016 Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc brings great excitement to the wine. Peach blossom and white flower give way to a very light slatey aroma that is a perfect introduction to the crisp minerally flavors. This wine spent a bit more time on its fermentation lees than is usual and there is significant evidence for this in the depth of its flavors. Capable of holding up to a wide variety of culinary options, but particularly good with some fresh, briny oysters.

Wine Spectator

Richer and more unctuous than most recent releases of sauvignon from Frog’s Leap, this wine still holds its freshness over the course of several days. John Williams and his team farm organically, without irrigation, which resulted in a particularly concentrated wine in 2016. Its flavors transform from lime and beeswax toward passion fruit, with hints of toast from long aging on the lees. Clean and lasting, the flavor and texture would complement roast arctic char or other rich fish.
