2010 Cupcake Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc

Holy grass! Something that's very common in New Zealand Sauvignon blancs, this white from Cupcake isn't shy about its herbaceous grass aromas! We found lots of pear and peaches on the nose, too. Very nice aromas all together!

This sauv blanc reminds us of Summer! We tasted super juicy peaches, pears and granny-smith apples and that wonderful freshly cut grass. The mouthfeel is great: smooth, yet crisp with great acidity!

This isn't a very complex wine, but could easily be a crowd pleaser. It's just simply delicious. Perfect party wine! For $8, any downfalls are easily outweighed by the tastiness! It's an exceptional value. Top Pick!


Like the new banner look! Great post as always.

Sounds like my kind of party! The fact that it's named after dessert is an added bonus!

Thanks Renee!

The Winos, indeed it is!
