If you’re experiencing a heat wave where you live then you’re body is probably craving a refreshing and sensory fulfilling white wine to take the edge off after a long day or simply to relax with on the weekend. For the years the Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc has been one of my go-to casual wines for this exact purpose. Always refreshing and vibrant, the wine regularly expresses traditional Sauvignon Blanc characteristics of citrus flavors and lively acidity along with a riper fruit component to create balanced wine.
Finally named to Wine Spectator’s Top Value List of California Sauvignon Blanc, the 2010 Pomelo is a great buy for lovers of and those interested in exploring the varietal.
So go ahead and purchase two bottles of the wine: one to enjoy with a relaxing appetizer of fresh goat’s cheese and crackers, the second to enjoy with a light summer dinner.

Here is my complete review:
2010 Pomelo Sauvingon Blanc (California)
Primarily sourced from a vineyard in Lake County and blended with small amount of Sauvignon Blanc from Lodi, the 2010 Pomelo is pale straw in color and opens with a lively nose of lemongrass, lime, and guava. Light mouthfeel with the fruit and acidity of grapefruit (not tart though) along with a hint of pith. Finishes light and clean with a small amount of the wine’s essence lingering on the palate. A simple, but enjoyable summer wine.
Retails Around $9-12 and available via winery’s website for $10
