For many of us, the summer months renew our appreciation for aromatic, crisp white wines. The darting flavors of a chilled white help temper warm days and enhance summer’s fare. One of the most sought after varietals in our stores is Sauvignon Blanc. This traditional varietal has been successfully grown in just about every corner of the wine world. Along the way, it seems to pickup up tell tale flavors from where ever it’s grown, while maintaining signature flavors. Whether it’s the grapefruit infused versions from New Zealand or the mineral laced bottlings from France’s Loire Valley, there’s a Sauvignon Blanc for every wine enthusiast.
Today’s wine circles back to the ‘holy-land’ of American wine, Napa Valley…famous for a style of Sauvignon Blanc forward with fruit, generous in mouthfeel and bracing with acidity. Heritance produces classic Napa Sauvignon Blanc, sourced from prime vineyards throughout the region’s key sites. Crafted by the very capable Tom Hinde, its no wonder this Sauvignon Blanc has become an early favorite this Summer season. Mr. Hinde’s work throughout California’s illustrious wine regions is enviable to say the least. Serving as Director of Winemaking for Flowers Winery, a benchmark producer of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir, his resume doesn’t stop there. In 1997 he was responsible for developing Napa Valley legends Lokoya ($175), Cardinale ($250), and Verite ($350)…yeah, read it again. It’s reasonable for one to say that Tom knows a thing or two about making great wine!
With such iconic winery’s in his rear view mirror, one would think the wines from Heritance are for the uber-elite of the wine consuming population, yet nothing could be further from the truth. The Heritance Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is suggested to sell for $19.99, but for this week only, we’re featuring this delicious wine for a mere $14.99! On Sale until our current stock sells out, this is a deal you don’t want to wait for…checkout online & pickup in store to secure some of this stellar wine!
