2014 Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc

"This vibrant and complex Sauvignon Blanc bursts with flavors of Key Limes, white nectarines, grapefruit and gooseberry leaving a well-balanced finish. New Zealand’s Marlborough region has a cool climate and long growing seasons which allow the grapes to mature slowly, enhancing character and complexity. We work with growers in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys to explore the different soil profiles and micro climates of the region. The grapes are harvested at night and promptly pressed to undergo cool fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks. An extended fermentation sur lie adds richness and softness, complementing the fruit’s natural zest and acidity. This wine is delicious with sushi, grilled sea bass or Asian chicken salad." - Winery [+]
