In spite of the cooler season the wine shows lovely ripe sweet raspberry fruit and the characteristic pepper and musk notes typical of northern Rhone Syrah. The wine drinks well now but will cellar for up to five years.


pH: 3.64
Total acidity as tartaric: 6.5g/l
Alcohol: 12.5%
Residual sugar: Dry


The grapes were fermented between 20-30° C and then left on skins for a fortnight before pressing.


Michael Morris and Peter Cowley, vineyard partners and old car enthusiasts, named this wine after the pre-1928 Morris Cowley car, nicknamed Bullnose due to its distinctive radiator. The bull emblem of the label is drawn from the Bullnose car’s radiator crest.

Bullnose '92 - 'No mistaking the colour and hues reflect a wine with bottle age - garnets and orange, some browning, however … a complex, if not beguiling bouquet of aged syrah with aromas of aged meats and leather, a soft pepper and savoury core then dried berry and plum suggestions. Some old baking spices and oak then layer in. Calm and well integrated on the palate with flavours that reflect the nose. Still has an acid line and lengthy finish. A delight to taste.' 97 Points
