TE MATA ESTATE BULLNOSE SYRAH 2020
TE MATA ESTATE
Vineyard partners Michael Morris and Peter Cowley named Bullnose after an early Morris
Cowley car, nicknamed Bullnose due to its distinctive radiator. The bull emblem that appears
on the label is drawn from the car’s radiator crest.
Separate parcels of fully ripened syrah grapes were hand-harvested from Te Mata Estate’s

A luminous deep magenta, Bullnose Syrah ’20 is immediately floral with fresh raspberry, black-cherry syrup, spiced plums and oriental peonies, all bursting from the glass. There’s cinnamon, nutmeg and earth, with mineral, ripe boysenberry and black berry-fruit on the palate adding presence and sustained, subtle power. Fine-grained tannins carry the palate on and on. Luxurious. Resplendent. Bullnose Syrah’ 20 is our most beautiful Bullnose.
