About

Scott Comyns is one of the Hunter Valley’s brightest young winemakers, and being Hunter Valley through-and-through it comes as no surprise to see him absolutely nail his first Semillon under his and his wife Missy’s very own label.

For his inaugural Comyns & Co. Semillon Scotty has ventured to the famed ‘Army Block’ vineyard, so named due to its proximity to the Singleton Army Base. The fruit is all hand-picked and whole bunch pressed, with the resulting output of just 150 or so cases of wonderful Hunter Sem.

Scott mentioned to us when we looked through his exciting range of wines that “phenolics are too often forgotten about by winemakers making Semillon”, and he has managed to work in some lovely texture and grip to balance what is gorgeously fresh and pure fruit.

It received a terrific 93+ points from Campbell Mattinson, and while it will no doubt be long-lived it’s ready to rock and roll right away.

A great debut for a hugely exciting new Hunter producer and whether you’re a Semillon fan or not this is a delicious drink!

What It Tastes Like

“The wine is good. It’s piercing. It’s Hunter semillon, straight, pure, direct, uncompromised. Lemon, wet slate, a whisper of herbs. Bone dry and impressively persistent; it has a keen future.” - Campbell Mattinson
