Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2011 Heritance Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley is an assemblage of Sauvignon Blanc and Roussanne. It has typical Sauvignon Blanc varietal aromas - good citrus notes with just a hint of ripe grapefruit. The palate has tropical flavors, with passion fruit and guava undertones. The mouthfeel is fresh, round and fleshy, displaying pleasant acidity without angularity. This can be attributed to the Roussanne which softens the inherent acidity in the Sauvignon Blanc while imparting richness to the final blend, important in this cooler year. The wine is smooth and well balanced with great complexity and a long finish.

Blend: 88% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Roussanne
