Comyns & Co Rosé 2016
The previous three releases, Mrs White, Fiano and Semillon, were released at the same time along with this Rosé made from Merlot. Later this year Comyns will release his Shiraz and his take on the Hunter River Burgundy blend of a 50/50 Shiraz and Pinot Noir. Stay tuned for these - I had the privilege of tasting the Shiraz and Pinot parcels in barrel and they are looking schmick.
To this Rosé and another eye catching label with the juice inside possessing smash factor. Pretty aromas pique your attention; cranberries, red fruits and red berries. Roughly a third was barrel fermented adding some textural interest. The only filtered wine in the range, this is crisp with a generous helping of fruit before moving to a bone dry and moreish finish. Cut loose here people, there's a pretty high evaporation factor once it hits your glass!
91/100 - Very good.
