Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) The high elevation of our Mason Vineyard in Lake County’s Kelsey Bench and arc of rich, red volcanic soils, provides a unique growing region for ripe Sauvignon Blanc flavor and body year after year. Our Sauvignon Blanc opens with aromas of fragrant orange blossom, ruby grapefruit, and white peach flavors set on a light body with pops of lime zest and passion fruit.

Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) Primarily sourced from Lake County, Pomelo’s characteristic grapefruit profile is consistently found in our blocks situated on the Kelseyville bench. With an elevation of nearly 1300’, the growing season is long, with ample hours of sunshine and great diurnal temperature fluctuations- all responsible for the explosive flavors found in Pomelo. We also source a small percentage from an old, established block in Lodi- amazing balance and texture, the Sauvignon Blanc sourced from this region is grapefruit pith with a weightiness contributing to the mid-palette. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. 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.

    (From 2009 Vintage) Proprietor/winemaker Randy Mason's fruity, lively, vibrant 2008 Sauvignon Blanc Pomelo is a fruit-driven Sauvignon that sees no barrel fermentation or lees aging. Loaded with fruit (grapefruit and citrus), it is a joy to drink over the next year.
