A nice Sauvignon Blanc is great in the heat of summer and good year-round with seafood. I opened a bottle of Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc last night with a shrimp dish.
The Pomelo is made by Mason Cellars in Napa Valley. They get the fruit from Lake County which is just north of Napa. This is a value bottling that is very very drinkable Sauv Blanc.
I opened the bottle to a nose of strong citrus, primarily grapefruit. That’s a typical Sauv Blanc. But on the palate there is a strong taste of peach with a very mild mid-palate and easy to enjoy finish.
The texture is very smooth for a wine normally known for minerality and acid. In one review the word “creamy” was used to describe the Pomelo.
By the way, a pomelo is a member of the citrus family often compared to a grapefruit. It’s grown mostly in south eastern Asia. None of that in hear but plenty of peach and citrus with a smooth finish.
I found this wine online at $9-$13. The suggested retail price is $10. Disclaimer: this wine was provided for review.
