Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from Cupcake was my favorite from their lineup. It opens with a very attractive and classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc bouquet. That is, it displayed ripe grapefruit with a touch of lime. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and shows very nice balance between its acidity and fruit. It also has a very nice mouth presence. The flavor profile is a tasty grapefruit with hints of lime and pineapple. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite a while. This Sauvignon Blanc is a steal at $10. It would pair well with grilled swordfish with a tropical fruit salsa. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Sourced from the South Island of New Zealand, this Sauvignon Blanc exhibits complexity and a vibrant zing. Flavors of Meyer lemons and Key limes integrate with hints of grapefruit, gooseberry and citrus, culminating in a long, creamy finish.
