Cheers Wine of the Month February two selections from Mason Cellars only $9.99
(Regularly $11.99)
 
 
2010 Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc
Vineyard Notes:
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.
Winemaking Notes:
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.
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.
 
2010 Three Pears Pinot Grigio
Vineyard Notes:
Nestled within the Sacramento Delta, our Three Pears Pinot Grigio is sourced from an ideal climate for producing crisp, aromatic white wines.  The heavy maritime influence cools the afternoon heat with consistent winds, moderating temperature and allowing for clean fruit flavors and great acid retention.  Built on the levy system, soils are fertile but well drained tending to produce balanced vines; canopies with great exposure for subtle nuanced flavors. 
Winemaking Notes:
Long, cool fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks, capture the expressive, clean fruit flavors characteristic of vineyards in this area.  Harvested at lower brix, the natural acid levels compliment the crisp apple and pears flavors of our Three Pears.  The lengthy fermentation produces wines with great balance, clean mid-palates, rounded out by a slight sweetness. 
Tasting Notes:

Aromatics of crisp pear, pippin apple and citrus.  Nectarous pears, peaches and apples combine in a rich mouthfeel, complemented by a savory acidity.
