Wine Wednesday: 2008 Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc

Cupcake Vineyards
Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand

This beautifully bright and clear pale yellow Sauvignon Blanc serves to be a wonderful Summer/Early Fall white wine. It offers an array of well balanced fruits to the palate such as grapefruit, meyer lemon, hints of kiwi as well as having floral components. This wine is very light and refreshing and offers the palate a zesty yet not overly acidic finish. It's best served cold to keep it's acidity and bouquette balance in line. Pairs very well with fish and shellfish.

  1. This sounds delicious. Might I suggest a 2007 Marco Negri Moscato d'Asti. It's an Italian white wine that is also fruit-filled and quite lovely. Make sure it's a Marco Negri though, it's the sweetest. I'm a big fan.
