Cupcake Pinot Grigio is full, with with a nose that shows hints of pineapple, pears, and sweet lemons. The body is full and gives way to a creamy mid-palate, integrating tropical fruits, with the vibrant zing of citrus fruits. It is reminiscent of a pineapple upside down cupcake. Enjoy with bay scallops in a cream sauce, linguine alfredo, or simply as an aperitif.
Cupcake Pinot Grigio grapes are picked by hand, de-stemmed and crushed before undergoing a very cool fermentation in steel tanks. The wine undergoes an extended maceration on its’ lees. A portion of this wine (approximately 5%) is made using the traditional passito method, whereby the grapes are harvested and left to dry on straw mats for several weeks. Once dehydrated they are crushed, and fermented. This wine is then blended back into the overall wine. The result is a rich creamy wine that is blended in with the overall wine giving this Pinot Grigio a level of depth and complexity.
