2019 Frog's Leap Shale and Stone Chardonnay

2019 Frog's Leap Shale and Stone Chardonnay...$33.99
Compare to $34.99 at Total Wine and More
100% Chardonnay
From the famous Truchard Vineyard, Carneros, Napa Valley
The combination of a very successful vintage, the deep fractured soils of the Truchard vineyard, a short barrel fermentation followed by extended sur lie aging has once again produced a remarkable Chardonnay in the unique Frog’s Leap style. Subtle but distinct white peach combined with lightly toasted hazelnuts define the aromas. But it really is the crisp, perfectly balanced, and bone-dry flavors that make the wine. The only problem with serving it with a perfectly baked quiche Lorraine is that too much of the bottle is empty by the time the quiche comes out of the oven!
