2010 Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough NZ

This is the first 2010 vintage wine I’ve been able try!   New Zealand already had their harvest earlier this year.   And Sauvignon Blanc is usually made in a clean, crisp style so it doesn’t require much time in regards to the aging process.   This wine smells lively.   Cilantro, grapefruit, kiwi, lemon peel and grass on the nose.  The color is very light, almost clear.   Remember, white wine gets darker with age – and this one is VERY young.  The acidity on this is high, and I prefer the roundness of the ’09 NZ Sauv Blanc I have tried but enjoyable nonetheless.
