I love discovering small, top-end producers before the crowd has figured it out. But I REALLY love finding highly sought after allocations from winemaking superstars. One of my favourite finds of the year, by far, is Heidi Barrett’s 2015 La Sirena Grenache. (As you know, Heidi Barrett is one of Napa Valley’s most respected winemakers responsible for cult-wine legends like Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle and Grace Family, to name just a few).
I just got back from meeting with Heidi’s team. I pleaded for an additional allocation of this incredible wine. They said no. So I begged some more. And some more. And maybe just to get rid of me, they finally relented.I am delighted to report there’s more on the way — but not much, just twelve cases. The best part? I was able to get the same ridiculous pricing as previously; just HK$350 per bottle (+ shipping). By the way, this is the last ever Grenache vintage from the trail side in St. Helena. Even Heidi couldn’t convince the vineyard owners to keep this incredibly unique Grenache vineyard over big $ Cabernet.
Due to the nature of this allocation, I’m offering the 2015 La Sirena Grenache on a first come, first serve basis (maximum of one case per person / 750ml x 12 bottles). Orders placed today will arrive in mid-September via our consolidated shipment.
SOLD OUT (thank you!)
