Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Frog's Leap Shale and Stone Chardonnay 2018
A winemaker is always loathe to say that any particular wine—even given the highest quality of the vintage—approaches his or her ideal of that varietal. And I will not say that about our 2018 Chardonnay, but I am darn close.
The description “Shale and Stone” on the 2018 label is reflective of nearly a decade of experimentation (mostly unlearning what I knew about Burgundian winemaking technique) to arrive at a style that celebrates the deep minerality of its ancient fractured shale soils and preserves the freshness of the varietal with long sur lie aging in concrete.
The result is this stunning 2018 Chardonnay: taut but generous, full yet bright on the palate.
