Very limited-produced summer white


 

Heidi has been around the block, and does not need an intro, or does she… Screaming Eagle’s original winemaker, Amuse Bouche, Vin Perdu, Barrett & Barrett, etc…. and of course her own label La Sirena (Mermaid). The entire portfolio is red-centric, so for some it might be a surprise to see a white wine from Heidi…

This white, The Moscato Azul is an unusual, delicious dry (not sweet) expression of Muscat Canelli. In its signature blue bottle, Moscato Azul has become a fan favorite for its drinkability, perfumey aroma, crisp acidity, and ability to pair well with many different dishes. It’s especially perfect during the spring and summer time on warm days.

The 2023 dry Muscat Canelli is a crisp white wine that is highly aromatic with beguiling tropical and floral notes. The aromatics of this wine are always so special – one sniff and you’ll fall in love. Very pale straw in color with bold aromas of tropical fruit, lychee, pineapple, guava, and white peach. Flavors match the aromas, with a touch of jasmine and green-apple-like acidity in the finish. This is such a great wine to enjoy pairing with tons of exciting dishes – go wild! Deliciously well-balanced with a pure, clean flavor profile and silky smooth texture.

Heidi Barrett Notes: “Celebrating our 20th vintage of this very special wine – La Sirena Moscato Azul. First produced in 2003, this is a unique dry Muscat Canelli. Most Muscat (or Moscato) is made into sweet dessert wine – but not this time. In our Moscato Azul, you have all the beautiful floral character of Muscat Canelli, without the sugar. It’s a delightful, fun white wine that is incredibly versatile for food pairing, thanks to its floral and tropical flavors. It’s absolutely wonderful with Thai, Vietnamese, Indian or fusion cuisine among many others! Just chilled on its own, it’s perfect as a refreshing sipping wine to share with friends. This wine is best consumed in 1-2 years, enjoyed fresh and fruity (not meant for aging). Also known for its signature cobalt blue bottle!.”
 
Robert Parker says: “A wine that Heidi Barrett does better than just about anybody in California is her unbelievably fun Moscato Azul….. Reminiscent of northern Italy’s famous Moscatos. A slow cold fermentation renders a wine with an explosive perfume of spring flowers and tropical fruits. This is an ideal aperitif or breakfast wine, or it can be enjoyed at the end of a meal”. And… “Barrett has hit pay dirt with a lively, consumer-friendly dry Muscat… It is fresh, light bodied, and crisp… seductive aromatics”.
 
Actor Alan Rickman, of Bottle Shock fame, once remarked that “it was the most delicious thing ever to pass through his lips”. Can’t argue with that!
