Cupcake Marlborough 2011 Sauvignon Blanc,
$9.34-$10.99, 88 points is transparent lemon in color, with a bright awakening aroma of grapefruit, lemon and lime zest.
The aroma is passed down to the palate with a sharp white grapefruit dominating hints of lemon/lime. A light bodied wine that is bright and lively though at times is too tart, though that didn't bother me, because of how refreshing this wine is. There is little or no grassiness or spice to speak of.
I think the issue here is whether one likes a tangy white wine, and the answer will be found in those who like a nearly bitter grapefruit.
The 13% alcohol is unnoticeable.
