Learn About Pomelo

The name Pomelo comes from the giant citrus fruit native to Malaysia and thought to be ancestor to the grapefruit. Our Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc reminds us of the coral-pink tangy juice from a pomelo. Pomelo is a new and unique Sauvignon Blanc made with l00% Sauvignon Blance grapes solely from Lake County, California. Pomelo wines are crafted by winemaker Randy Mason of Mason Cellars out of Yountville, California. The wine offers subtle hints of grapefruit and floral nuances in the nose and mouth along with honeysuckle and vanilla. Made with 5% barrel fermentation, 95% cold tank fermented.
