Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc California 2012
100% Sauvignon Blanc, primarily sourced from Lake County. Fermented in all stainless steel tanks; extremely long and cold ferment allows for the fragrant and big fruit flavors to be appreciated. The crisp acidity is retained and then rounded out and complimented by a broadened mouth and ever-slight sweetness. Tasting notes: A mouth-watering, vivid style; this wine explodes with delicious flavors of passion fruit, guava, quince, lime peel; with an intensely grapefruit nose. Not yet reviewed; 2011 vintage rated 88 points and 'Best Buy' by Wine Enthusiast: This is a large-production Sauvignon Blanc that tastes delicious. If you like grapefruit and pomelo flavors, you will love this enticingly priced white that's got razor sharp acidity, a touch of New Zealand-like grass and a long finish.

There are 48,000 cases of the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Pomelo (100% Sauvignon Blanc aged in stainless steel), a Sauvignon fruit bomb. Slightly softer than the more classic examples of this varietal, it is loaded with melon and other tropical fruits. Fruity, soft, round and generously endowed, it will provide pleasure over the next year.
Wonderful grapefruit and figgy nose. This wine explodes with delicious flavors of fig, apple and grapefruit. It is as though one were biting into a big piece of yummy fruit. It also has a lovely textural mouth feel.
