Non-discountable item
Located on the Northeastern tip of the South Island of New Zealand, Marlborough is marked by its cool weather as well as its shallow stony soils that aid drainage and limit fertility. We've chosen the most renowned grape of New Zealand to make our decadent and flavorful Cupcake Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc.
Wine maker notes
The 2009 season was quite mild, with a minimal amount of rain. Large yields were pruned back to help concentrate the flavors of this wine. It's the long cool season that allows the grapes to mature slowly, giving them levels of complexity and a vibrant zing, reminiscent of your grandma's lemon chiffon cupcake. It's made up of integrated flavors of Meyer lemons, Key limes and a finish that awakens the appetite.

Technical notes
Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc was harvested and gently crushed. After a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine underwent a long extended rest sur lies to embolden the richness in the body and softness on the mid palate, complimenting the natural zestiness and acidic structure of these Marlborough grapes. This year's vintage has hints of grapefruit, gooseberry, and citrus, and comes together with a long, creamy finish.

Food pairing
Serve chilled with oysters on a half shell or with a rich and succulent Lobster Risotto.

Producer
Where warm days give way to cool nights, and grapes hang on the vines slowly soaking in the sun, there’s no better way to celebrate the small moments of joy, every day. Inspired by the indulgent treat that evokes joy and anticipation, Cupcake Vineyards offers an extensive portfolio of finely-crafted wines to help you celebrate your everyday moments of joy. Our winemaker explores vineyards all over the world - including in our backyard, California’s Central Coast - to source some of the best grapes possible for Cupcake wines, then works in our cellar to let their natural characteristics shine through in our wines. After introducing a small selection of fruit-forward, creamy wines in 2008, we’ve grown our portfolio to include a wide variety of delicious red, white and sparkling wines. From California classics to favorites from some of the world’s preeminent grape-growing regions, our wines all share a balanced style that makes it easy for you to switch from one Cupcake wine to the next, celebrating the small moments of joy. Cheers!
