The only white wine from La Sirena, this Moscato 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.
Tasting Notes: The 2019 is a clear white-gold color, with vibrant clean aromas of bright tropical fruit and jasmine -honeysuckle floral notes. Crisp and round across the palate, with flavors of pineapple, lychee fruit, and white nectarine. It has a clean finish with bright acidity, and an elegant, polished profile. The Moscato Azul, La Sirena’s proprietary white wine recognizable by its unique style and consistency each year. Reminiscent of dry Riesling with a bit of minerality and lime peel in the finish when served very chilled. It has tons of flavor without weightiness, enticingly fresh and lively, crisp and dry in the finish.
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’s a shame more California wineries don’t produce these wines.. 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
