a fun summer wine

We just finished seeing Toy Story 3 in 3-D. So fun! Have you seen it yet? Don't miss it! There is an especially funny part of the movie that involves Mr. Potato Head and a tortilla. I'd better not give away too much, I don't want to ruin it for anyone.

Anyway...I was at the store yesterday picking up a few items for dinner and spotted this Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc. I am usually a red girl but I've been trying to branch out a bit and try more whites. I've tried a few Sauvignon Blancs recently and I think this is one of my new favorites.

This wine is out of California. It has the taste and aroma (nose?) of fresh pomelo. I won't even pretend to speak "wine". I will tell you, in my opinion, it has a bright, fresh, lovely flavor and I will most definitely purchase it again.

I found this bottle of Fred Meyer for around ten dollars. Look for it. I think you'll really enjoy it.

Stay tuned for a fabulous cookbook giveaway!

Awesome review! I know nothing about wine so I'm always trying to elicit as many opinions about it as possible...so that maybe I'll glean enough terminology to be able to make up my own. :P Sounds good!

Kim, we've had this often for about the same price. I think we found it at Costco. Very refreshing for summer.

Lora said...

I don't know anything about wine either, but that label pulls me in. Of course if it wasn't lemony I'd be disappointed.
