Yellow grapefruit is what we often find in the juice section at the supermarket. It’s not often that you find pink grapefruit juice like this Dewlands Ruby Grapefruit Juice that’s blended with apple juice (ruby grapefruit juice (with pulp)(49%)).
The juice is an opaque pink-red colour with a sweet grapefruit nose. Served chilled, sweet notes of grapefruit with a just a hint of bitterness comes through with a pleasantly acidic yet sweet aftertaste. While pink grapefruit has a more mellow flavour than yellow grapefruit, the apple juice blended here rounds out all but a trace of the characteristic bitterness of grapefruit, leaving only a minimal zesty citrus flavour in the aftertaste. That said, the sweeter, rounder flavour of the juice makes it much easier to drink than ordinary grapefruit juice, making it perfect for those not fond of bitter flavours.
This bottle of Dewlands Ruby Grapefruit Juice contained 1 litre. It was produced in South Africa and purchased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
