Frog's Leap Napa Valley Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc 2018 Organic
First certified by CCOF in 1988, Frog's Leap has been a leader in the industry for over two decades. Dubbed a “Prince of a Wine” by the New York Times in 1982, this wine set a course that hasn't veered much from its original ideals. Today this wine is still made from 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc grapes and done so in such a way that the alcohol is kept low, the acidity high, and the flavors crisp and refreshing. In fact, the only changes we've made along the way have been in pursuit of a noble quest: to make a Sauvignon Blanc that is so indicative of the place in which it is grown that it could come from nowhere else. Each of the Sauvignon Blancs Frog's Leap has made during the past several years embodies the fine-tuning we've done along this journey. The wine became 100 percent stainless-steel fermented and aged in the late '90s. As of 2001, it has carried the Rutherford appellation. And in 2002 it began to be made exclusively from dry-farmed, organically grown vineyards. All of this has taught us one simple lesson: the less we interfere in the cellar with the perfectly grown clusters, the more beautiful the wine becomes.
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is lovely, with stone fruit, crisp green apple, and
wonderfully bright mineral flavors. This is Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc in all its
glory. Bottled for the first time with a twist-off cap to protect the integrity of
its aromas, it is now easier than ever to enjoy this wine with a roasted tomato
and goat cheese tart. 12.7% Alc.
