Cupcake Chardonnay 2009
Wine Tasting Notes We work hard to bring you the biggest, richest Chardonnay from California's desirable Central Coast, where the sun drenched grapes create full and elegantly textured wines. Decadent layers of butter, cream, bright citrus and vanilla melt into a balance of oak and subtle spice. In other words: Delicious. Serve chilled with crab cakes, seared Ahi tuna on waffle crackers or fresh-baked French bread and cheese.
Bright yellow-gold, aromas of apple pear, citrus and vanilla, lively flavor notes of yellow apples, tropical fruits and vanilla spice.
Just not a fan of this wine.
This one is another winner from Cupcake. For 10 bucks it has a very bold and flavorful classic Chardonnay profile with oak, fruit, and butter proportioned just right. A pleasant fruity complexity on the finish is reminiscent of tropical fruits. Highly recommended. I don't even like chardonnay usually but I sure like this one.
Mellow and very drinkable. Mildly sweet and not sharp. A bit of cream and a touch of honey. Maybe a touch bland. Cupcake is one of my sister-in-law's favorites, and I am getting to like them too. Paid $11 for a bottle.
Lots of bang for buck with this typical California style Chardonnay. Creamy and easy to drink. Apple, lemon and pear blend together for a lovely crowd pleasing wine.
A little more oak than I had hoped for because I had read that this was lightly oaked. Over all a good bottle though, don't let the first sip throw you off.
Nice and fruity but a little bit strong.

Cupcake Chardonnay was crafted to emphasize the Central Coast's creamy and structured Chardonnay character. It starts off with a touch of apple, a hint of tropical fruits and is complimented by a balance of vanilla and spice. We used malolactic fermentation with aging in small barrels to provide a rich mid palate that develops into a long, smooth, satisfying finish.
Supple ripe pear and white peach notes, with subtle spicy nuances, make this a soft, easy-drinking wine. Drink now.
Appropriately named, Cupcake Chardonnay is what one would think of when eating the delectable dessert... butter, vanilla, rich, creamy with a touch of sweetness. This wine comes from sunny California's Central Coast, undergoing malolactic fermentation to round it out and create a smooth mouthfeel. It is aged in American oak for nine months to grant it a little more structure. It goes beautifully with calamari, crab cakes or fried shrimp. Served in most of the local Allentown restaurants by the glass - save your money and get it here!
