Comyns & Co Black Cluster Shiraz 2016


My first look at Scott Comyns' new 2016 reds. A tough vintage to make a debut mind you but he's done the job here. Small batch Hunter Shiraz done well. Striking label too - Scott's brother Angus has worked wonders again.

Medium bodied as you'd expect from Hunter Shiraz, though it sits fractionally on the leaner side. Red cherries, red earth, baked raspberry and a dash of black pepper are all prominent. A solid drink. Consistent drive through the mouth to a sustained finish. The proof is in the pudding - after a few days the bottle was empty - I couldn't help but keep revisiting it.

Drink now to six years.
