Heritance is the creation of Bernard Portet, a visionary Napa Valley winemaking icon who has been crafting wine in this acclaimed region for decades. For Heritance, Bernard works closely with his grower-partners, practicing sustainable farming techniques to achieve the highest quality fruit from select Napa Valley vineyards. Through his assemblage winemaking approach, Bernard and his team blend small lot wines from different varieties and terroirs to create wines that are greater than the sum of their parts. In Bernard’s signature style, Heritance wines are elegant, complex and balanced, and are crafted to pair beautifully with food. Bob Pepi is Consulting Winemaker. Bob started making wines with his father Robert Pepi (in Oakville) in 1981. Production Area The grapes for this wine comes from vineyards located in the Rutherford and Yountville appellations in Napa Valley. In Rutherford and Yountville, the soils are gravelly and well-drained. The Semillon comes from the Pope Valley area of Napa Valley, grown in soil of well-drained gravel and alluvialloam. The Sauvignon Blanc comes from the Decarle Vineyard/Rutherford and Napa River Ranch/Yountville. Grape Varieties 93% Sauvignon Blanc, 7% Semillon Vinification The grapes are hand harvested in mid-September. The wine undergoes a slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks at temperatures below 60°F. Lees aging softens the naturally high acidity and adds a creamy texture to the wine. Color Pale lemon-green Bouquet Intense aromas of citrus, apricot, fig, melon are accompanied by delicate tropical notes. Taste Dry, round and full-bodied with citrus, stone fruit and passion fruit notes which lead to a long finish. Alcohol 13.8% Serving Suggestions A quintessential pairing with seafood, chicken and pork, as well as soft cheeses such as goats milk cheese.

Diamond Series Sauvignon Blanc 2011 - 85 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Forward aromas of green pepper, asparagus, green plum and a touch of talcum powder on the nose. Tart, lean, green fruit flavors fill the mouth, ending on a brisk yet clean finish. Kosher.

Remy Pannier has been identified with premium quality Loire Valley wines since 1885, when it was founded by Francois Rémy. In 1956, Remy Pannier decided to partner with Maison Ackerman, the pioneer of Loire sparkling wine production. Ackerman then passed the company down to his son, Louis Ackerman, who kept the tradition of fine winemaking in the family for generations. Over the years, Remy Pannier has developed strong working relationships with over 800 growers throughout the Loire Valley. Working closely with these affiliated growers, Remy Pannier provides advice on the latest viticultural practices to ensure production of the finest quality grapes. Remy Pannier has built three state-of-the-art wineries in the premier Loire Valley wine districts of Anjou, Touraine and the Pays Nantais where all their Loire Valley wines are vinified. Remy Pannier’s attractive packaging reflects over a century of tradition and experience in Loire Valley winemaking. Production Area The Touraine Sauvignon Blanc is planted on clay and calcareous soil over chalky subsoil. Vineyards are in the eastern and southern parts of Touraine where they enjoy a mostly continental climate and early ripening. Grape Varieties 100% Sauvignon Blanc Vinification Yield control of about 65 hl/ha obtains the varietal character of Sauvignon Blanc. Rigorous optimal maturity preserves the aromatic character of the grapes. The alcoholic fermentation is performed quickly to preserve freshness, and there is no malolactic fermentation. One to two months on the fine lees gives more structure to the wine. The wine is then stored in stainless steel tanks with temperature control (55°F) until bottling. Color Pale gold Bouquet Enticing with nuances of honeysuckle, tropical fruit and citrus Taste A crisp, dry palate of lively fruit including melon, lemon and a touch of acacia flowers. A racy acidity balances the fruit flavors. Alcohol 11.5% Serving Suggestions This wine is great on its own or enjoy with oysters, seafood dishes, salads, quiche and goat’s milk cheese.
