Comunica Foxy Lady 2021
Is it a rose? Is it red? Will we ever know? Made from 100% Syrah grown in Monstant, Spain, the grapes were directly pressed, and half saw 18-hours of skin contact. This lively take on a classic Spanish rosado is a collaboration between Jason Axmith of Cosecha imports and the Celler Comunica. In short, this wine’s colour is only the tip of this delicious iceberg.
The name, a nod to the iconic Jimi Hendrix song Foxy Lady, is an unconventionally delicious wine with notes of strawberry, fresh cut watermelon, grapefruit, cinnamon and pepper. However it’s power comes from a generous palate and a deliciously saline finish. With more depth, tannin and acidity than your average rose, it may be worth considering this as a light red.
Get this wine if the first thing that comes to mind is Garth doing his Foxy Lady dance in Wayne’s World. If you know, you know.
