It's the long cool growing season in the South Island that allows our
Sauvignon Blanc grapes to mature slowly, giving them levels of complexity and a vibrant zing. This wine is reminiscent of a lemon chiffon cupcake. The aromas are integrated, delighting the senses with flavors of Meyer lemons, Key limes and a finish that awakens the appetite.
Serve chilled with oysters on a half shell or with a rich, creamy lobster risotto.

This wine is perfect. Just the right sweetness, very light, and goes well with any meal or alone.

Well this is my review of the Cupcake Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2013 BOY is this wine worth it! I had looked at Cupcake a few times and really wasn’t sure if I wanted to try it…I’m not sure why…maybe the sweet name threw me off, it suddenly becoming ubiquitous, I’m not sure…but it was on sale one day and I said okay, it’s time-- Marlborough in New Zealand has such a good rep…let’s see…. My oh my….starting as always with the bouquet—it is rich and vibrant! It is what you want the bouquet of a Sauvignon Blanc to be….the bouquet is so fresh you want to dive right in…you do and you get a vibrant fresh mouthful….with a clean finish and excellent taste…serve very chilled, the taste on the tongue is smooth….the flavor is rich….and although I balked when I read their description of…” culminating in a long, creamy finish.”—to me creamy finishes are for chardonnays! But not a Sauvignon Blanc, that I want a cleaner, crisper finish—but I was wrong! Yea! This smooth Blanc does have a creamy finish and it’s done with panache. Its full mouth feel but with distinct smoothness and richness. This is a good wine.
