Frogs Leap Chardonnay Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Crisp and clean" are not often ascribed to a California Chardonnay but with a nod to the great white wines of the old world, the 2009 Frog's Leap Chardonnay is just that. Vivid flavors of green apple, citrus and peach are delicately touched with hints of vanilla and toast. The interplay of fresh fruit and bright acidity, marked by notes of wet stone and slate, offer fantastic complexity and drive the wine's clean, refreshing finish. A vibrant wine to sip on its own, the Chardonnay is also a fantastic companion to seafood dishes, freshly shucked oysters and even mild cheeses.

I was blown away by this wine. It may be that others score higher or lower, but I dare say that everyone will agree it's different - oh say pinot grigio different. Rick was the first to say so - I cautiously waited, but except for the lemongrass throughout and small creamy notes on the nose this is totally PG. A golden hay liquid with green melons, grapefruit, lemongrass and solid spice - nose is riveting....mainly when you remember that this is a chard from time to time. Grapefruit, lemongrass and melon with touch of pepper and full blown acidity make this a really amazing drink. Wonderful. Drink now - why wait. Paul 89 oints
