Pomelo 2010 Sauvignon Blanc Review

Wine of the Day: 2010 Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc

We're suckers for a clever wine label and are occasionally swayed to try a new bottle purely based on its aesthetic appeal. Luckily, in this case, the packaging belies the contents within. The Pomelo 2010 Sauvignon Blanc ($10) manages to achieve the rare feat of tasting just as advertised. Crisply acidic, with notes of — you guessed it! — pomelo (a close relative to the grapefruit) and pineapple, tasters agreed that it was "très drinkable" (almost dangerously so) and would be "fun for an outdoor adventure" thanks to its twist-off top.

We'll be cooling off with a bottle or two of this reasonably priced supermarket favorite (we found ours at Safeway) all Summer, and we suggest you follow suit. We enjoy sipping it solo, but its clean flavors make it versatile. We wager it'd play nicely with the delicate flavors of the sea (flaky sole or steamed mussels, anyone?), particularly when accented with zesty citrus.
