PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Frog's Leap owner and winemaker John Williams got his start with none other than Warren Winiarski of Stag's Leap Vineyards and was there when the winery won the famous Paris tasting with its 1973 Cabernet. His auspicious beginnings laid the foundation for his present winemaking philosophy: that great wine is made in the vineyards. Vines are living creatures that know exactly what they need from their surroundings, and it is his job to provide the building blocks for healthy vine growth. He achieves this end by planting each varietal in the optimal soil, planting cover crops that encourage microbial density (thus promoting soil biodiversity), and farming organically, without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.*

There is very little acreage in the Napa Valley planted to chenin blanc, but Williams knew that chenin's exceptional ability to express its terroir would make it well-suited to the valley. As soon as a parcel of his Galleron vineyard became available for planting, he took the leap and dedicated the plot to this Loire Valley native. His instincts were spot-on; since its inaugural 2015 vintage, his chenin blanc has been a winner!

All of the fruit for today's wine was fermented and aged in one concrete tank. It is classic chenin blanc, gorgeously exhibiting all of its trademark characteristics. Aromas of spiced pear and lime zest follow on the lush and ebullient palate, which is layered with notes of apple and wet stone. Full and round, it is simultaneously laced with vibrant acidity.
