Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Heritance Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley is an assemblage of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. This is a classic wine with a beautiful, spun-gold hue, highlighted with tinges of lime green. The nose features a refreshing fruity combination of fresh berry with a touch of tropical and fig fragrances. This is a well-centered wine, that is round across the palate, fleshy and attractive, yet elegant with a long finish.

About Heritance:

Born in Cognac, France and mentored by his father, a régisseur (technical director) at Château Lafite, it would have been have been easy for Bernard Portet to continue his family’s wine tradition in France. Instead, the ninth generation French vintner studied viticulture and enology in Toulouse and Montpellier and then, upon graduation, set out to explore wine regions around the world.

Today, Bernard Portet brings us the wines of Heritance where he continues to make wine using his signature assemblage style. His goal is simple: blend wines from different varieties and terroirs to create finished wines greater than the sum of their parts. It is a style that creates uniquely distinctive wines, which showcase Bernard’s extensive Napa Valley experience.
