Frog's Leap Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
This is a superb wine from an extraordinary vintage. Beautifully reductive, aromas of white peach and hazelnut are slowly revealed with a few swirls of the glass. Carefully balanced on the acidic side, the 2016 Chardonnay has weight without heaviness, elegance without formality and drinkability without seeming to care. It is a food wine. Adept with a platter of oysters but more than willing to take on the richest, creamiest sauce. It should develop for many years to come.
