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.
Bernard Portet blendds of semillon into this sauvignon, the combination luscious and rich without feeling heavy. There's a cool spring water freshness to the finish, clearning up after the heady passionfruit flavors.
Made without oak, this is a beautiful,
stylish and elegant young wine to drink now. Blended
with some Sémillon for buttery fat, it highlights lime,
green grass, white peach and white pepper fl avors,
brightened with brisk acidity. Achieves an unusual level
of control and complexity, especially at this price. Editors’
