Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Our Chardonnay was crafted to emphasize the Central Coast’s crisp and vibrant Chardonnay character. We use a malolactic fermentation and then leave the wine sur lie to create a wine that is both rich, full, creamy, toasty, and soft. Premium Fermentation Techniques Barrel Fermentation — By using this process of fermentation it creates a more controlled environment for the wine where the flavors become more harmonized. It also enhances the golden Chardonnay colors, adds a creamy texture, and provides subtle toasty oak and spice flavors to the finished wine. Malolactic Fermentation — This process, where the malic acid is altered by natural means into lactic acid, reduces the wine’s acidity and imparts a buttery, rich flavor to the wine. Aging Technique — Aged for 9 months in premium American oak barrels adding richness and complexity to the wine.
This is a well extracted, rich style of Chardonnay. It has a good amount of fruit and is of excellent value. It is probably stainless steel fermented.There is some bottle variance here, as I just had one that I would rate an 83. It was much less fruit forward than the first bottle. My rating--- 83--87
Love this wine. It goes with everything. And for the price, you can't beat it. Not too sweet, perfect blend.
Absolutely terrible wine. This tastes like some type of cleaning agent. The worst wine I have ever had. Overtones of bleach, shoe polish, and a deep flavor of bitter lemon. Enjoy.
External Reviews for Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc
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 and smooth finish.
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 levels 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. - Winery
