A “Local” White Burgundy by the Queen of the Valley

Heidi Barrett, the original Screaming Eagle winemaker just announced a brand new wine from La Sirena! Although she made Chardonnay a number of times for her clients over the years, she was not compelled to make her own until a special vineyard site became available in 2016. Well-known vineyard manager Ulysses Valdez told her he had a few tons available from the Rued family original vineyard planted in 1969. She was enticed to have a look, and from there this beautiful Chardonnay was born. Only 173 cases were produced – so hurry!

Heidi’s Notes: “Sourced from the original 1969 planting of the Rued clone of Chardonnay, which is known for its somewhat tropical aromatics – some even refer to it as the Muscat clone of Chardonnay. Brilliant light golden straw in color with beautiful fruit aromas reminiscent of asian pear, green apple, pineapple, and citrus zest, with complementary notes of honey and crème brulee. A touch of toasty French oak enhances the aromatics and fruit flavors across the palate. The mouthfeel, texture and flavor profile is just delicious, with nicely balanced acidity and richness. Reminiscent of a white Burgundy or Chablis with its fresh and refined style.“
