It’s always an adventure stopping by a wine shop that I don’t usually frequent. Many times I see the same wines at slightly higher prices then what my favourite 3 shops have them priced at. But other times, I find a shop with very different distributors and a diverse [although typically more limited] selection. I was delighted when this occurred a couple of weeks back, I walked into the shop and immediately saw 2 bottles that I wanted to try, one of which being Heron Wines Sexto 2007. Laely Heron is an American winemaker that consistently produces “Best Buy” wines and top “By the Glass” wines. Sexto [meaning sixth in Spanish] refers to Garnacha Peluda, which was the 6th grape she added to this blend. It’s her first release from her Spanish venture, Bodega 3 Sueños located in Terra Alta. Her mission with this bottling was to create “a wine that is at the same time original, traditional, and has a modern twist”.
