Made with premium chardonnay grapes as a base, this proprietary white
blend is luscious, aromatic and delightfully reminiscent of an Angel Food
cupcake. Flavors of baked Granny Smith apple and hints of toasty vanilla
combine for a creamy mouthfeel that has become a signature of Cupcake
Vineyards. A heavenly pairing with white cheddar fondue, pancetta
wrapped figs or simply as an aperitif.
Our proprietary Angel Food wine is a delicate blend of white grapes
where each variety shows structure, aroma and depth of flavor with a
long creamy finish. The grapes are harvested from vineyards in some of
Californias finest viticultural areas, each picked for their ability to
engender these grapes with distinct characteristics. Each varietal is
fermented separately, blended and then put through a unique oak
regime that imparts a certain creaminess.
