Arrogant Frog Réserve by Arrogant Frog is a fruity, seductive red wine cuvée made from Syrah (45%), Grenache (30%) and Mourvèdre (25%) grape varieties.
In the glass, this wine shines in a strong ruby red with garnet red 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 to a long reverberation accompanied by roasted aromas.
Vinification of Arrogant Frog 's reserve
After harvesting the grapes, 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 a stainless steel tank and the maceration time is about 14 days. After marriage, this wine is aged in wood - 80% of the barrels are American - 20% French oak.
Food recommendation for the Arrogant Frog Réserve
We recommend this dry red wine from France with pasta, risotto with truffle, grilled red meat, game and soft cheese, but it is also a real treat for Asian cuisine.
