Arrogant Frog. If the boldly playful name doesn’t grab you, the art on the label just might. This is a French wine that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Keeping to that theme, this wine flashes bright gold in the glass. Its aromas continue the party atmosphere with tropical floral notes and ripe peaches. This wine is predominately made from Chardonnay grapes, with a solid flavor profile that is tempered by the rather exotic and aromatic contribution of Viognier grapes. Making this a fun wine to drink. The price point makes this a terrific party wine too. It drinks well all on its own and has enough assertive acidity to sip easily with whatever food comes your way. I chose to let its fruity nature stand out by pairing it with a simple dish of steamed mussels with fries. Moules Frites.
“Arrogant Frog was born in the Languedoc region of France. It’s a wine proud of its Mediterranean origins, and determined to show off its superiority. This Frog is typically French, but leaps out of the glass with New World attitude and style. Bright gold in color, it exudes persistent aromas of peach, pineapple and citrus, with a nuance of vanilla, leading to a seductively silky palate. Quality is preserved with a dependable screw-cap, ensuring that you enjoy a great glass of wine every time. Arrogant Frog is produced on the sunny hills of the Languedoc between the Mediterranean Sea and the Hérault valley by the Humble Winemaker. Theses vineyards planted first by the Greeks 500 years before Christ are ready to demonstrate that in spite of their age they are not ready to surrender to the New World.” Arrogant Frog
