Frog's Leap 'Shale & Stone' Chardonnay 2018

Frog’s Leap have been fortunate enough to work with the same Chardonnay vineyard ever since their first vintage in 1985. Planted by the renowned Truchard family in 1979, these vines are deeply rooted in the decomposed shale and sandstone that are characteristic of the steeply-sloped hillsides of Carneros, and lend themselves perfectly to the balanced, restrained style that is the Frog's Leap signature. Held for less than 5 days in new French oak barrels, the wine is racked at the peak of its fermentation to concrete vessels, where it sits, untouched and sur lie, for up to 10 months. Grown in shale and aged in stone, the Frog's Leap Chardonnay boasts incredible freshness and a distinct mineral edge that speaks directly to its origins.
