Cupcake Pinot Grigio 2010
The grapes are picked by hand, de-stemmed and crushed before undergoing a very cool fermentation in steel tanks. The wine undergoes an extended maceration on its lees. A portion of this wine (Approximately 5%) is made using the traditional passito method, whereby the grapes are harvested and left to dry on straw mats for several weeks. Once dehydrated they are gently pressed and fermented. This wine is then blended back into the overall wine, giving this Pinot Grigio a level of depth and complexity.
The first sip impresses with a nice blend of sweetness and citrus. But it is thin and pale, and a stemmy bitterness becomes more noticeable as one goes along. Similar to, but not as good as the other 2 Cupcake whites I've tried. Around $9 a bottle.

Food Pairings for Cupcake Pinot Grigio
Our Pinot Grigio is full with a nose that shows hints of pineapple, pears and sweet lemons. The body is full and gives way to a creamy mid-palate, integrating tropical fruits with the vibrant zing of citrus fruits. It is reminiscent of a pineapple upside down cupcake. Enjoy with bay scallop sin a cream sauce, linguine alfredo or simply as an aperitif.
