Te Mata Syrah Bullnose 2019/2020
A great Syrah which as first made in the early 1990s from iron rich soils in Hawke's Bay. This makes Bullnose one of the oldest Syrah brands in Hawke's Bay, named after one of the vineyards from which the wine is made (which, in turn, was named after the vineyard owners' love of old cars, particularly the pre 1928 Bullnose). The grapes come from two vineyards, Bullnose and Isosceles, both in the Bridge Pa Triangle; one of the warmer growing areas of Hawke's Bay, thanks to both soil and climate there.
Aging for 15 months in French oak, which provides its spicy notes and depth.
A beautiful wine for drinking now or for cellaring.
