Clean and crisp with a citrus bite! This wine is delicious especially paired with a sweet and creamy treat like cheesecake, or something more savory like an herbed and grilled wood plank salmon.

Being a fan of sauvignon blanc I was pretty disappointed when I cracked open this bottle. It was bitter and left an awkward after taste in my mouth. The hint of grapefruit was there. Semi dry and not overly sweet.

Surprised that I loved it this much. I like more peppery wines, but even though it is more mellow, it was still full bodied. Delicious but has been sold out where I live. Had to order a half a case! Can't wait :)

It's the long cool seasons in the South Island that allows Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc grapes to mature slowly, giving the wine levels of complexity and a vibrant zing. This Sauvignon Blanc is reminiscent of a lemon chiffon cupcake. It's made up of integrated flavors of Meyer lemons, Key limes and a finish that awakens the appetite There are hints of grapefruit, gooseberry and citrus, and comes together with a long, creamy finish.

Our vineyard works hard to bring you the zestiest,most refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from the cool Marlborough Valley. Here the grapes mature slowly, giving them complexity and a vibrant zing, 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 the half shell or with a rich, creamy lobster risotto. - Winery

Rich and enticing, the Cupcake Cabernet Sauvignon is a balance between generous profiles of fruit and oak. This full-bodied yet smooth Cabernet Sauvignon displays soft tannins, with primary fruit flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and plums. The dark fruits melt with the flavors of mocha and toasty oak before ending with a long and silky finish.

A big, rich wine from California's Central Coast, our full and elegantly textured Chardonnay has decadent levels of butter, cream, bright citrus and vanilla. These layers melt into a balance of oak and subtle spice. This wine epitomizes the Central Coast's crisp and vibrant Chardonnay character. We use a malolactic fermentation to impart rich buttery flavor, then leave the wine sur lie to achieve a full, soft body. Aging for nine months in premium American oak barrels enhances the golden color, adds creamy texture, and injects nuances of subtle toasty oak and spice. - Winery

Winemaker's Notes:

The sauvignon blanc grapes were harvested at night and gently crushed. After a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine underwent an extended 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.
