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.
