The Arrogant Frog Réserve from Arrogant Frog is a fruity, seductive red wine cuvée from the Syrah (45%), Grenache (30%) and Mourvèdre (25%) grape varieties.
In the glass this wine shines in a strong ruby red with garnet highlights. The complex bouquet of juicy, fresh blackberries and violets is accompanied by spicy vanilla notes. On the palate this French red wine is wonderfully balanced with an opulent, soft body. The silky tannins are perfectly integrated and harmonize wonderfully with the juicy fruit character and the subtle fruit sweetness. This red wine is rich, full-bodied and leads into a long finish, which is accompanied by roasted aromas.
Vinification of the Réserve from Arrogant Frog
After the grapes are harvested, the berries are completely destemmed and vinified separately by grape variety. The fermentation process for Grenache takes 4 days, for Mourvèdre and Syrah 5 days. All three grape varieties are fermented at a controlled temperature of 28 degrees Celsius in stainless steel tanks and the maceration time is about 14 days. After the marriage, this wine is aged in wood - 80% of the barrels are made of American oak - 20% of French oak.
Recommended food for the arrogant Frog Réserve
We recommend this dry red wine from France to accompany pasta, risotto with truffles, grilled red meat, game and soft cheese, but it is also a real treat with Asian cuisine.
