Description

One of the finest Syrahs in New Zealand, Te Mata Bullnose is named after the famous Morris car of the same nickname. Where many Hawke's Bay Syrahs pursue a darker, more brooding style, Bullnose has always had elegance and exotic spices at its core. Instantly recognisable in the mouth, Bullnose will deliver lots of pleasure for the next 15 years. Earlier this month, the Fine Wine Delivery tasting team were lucky enough to try the very first vintage, 1992! Faded roses, dried cherries and black tea. A sublime experience that demonstrates just how good this Hawke's Bay Syrah is!

Smells

A range of peppery spice and cedary oak notes, with raspberry, incense and roses.

Tastes

Classic subtle power here in the mouth, with an array of spices, plums and red fruits, a fine tannic structure guiding a long, elegant finish. Try this with a five-spiced duck breast or pork belly between now and 2030.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
