★★★★ 1/2, Michael Cooper’s Buyer’s Guide, February 2023

Te Mata Tasting Note

Displaying Bullnose’s classic vibrant, purple-edged magenta colour. This has perfume, plush berry fruit and underlying power. That signature Bullnose ‘nose’ displays dianthus and freesia aromas with fresh raspberry, black cherry, and cola throughout. The front palate’s rich and soft entry is loaded with those same ripe, concentrated fruit notes with superfine tannins and a refreshing fine finish. Bullnose Syrah ’22 delivers classical elements alongside a modern level of detail, power, refinement, and restraint.

Bullnose '22

The individual lots were each destemmed and given a traditional warm-plunged fermentation. The resulting wines underwent extended maceration on skins before pressing and then a secondary malolactic fermentation. The separate wines were then run to a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barriques for 11 months’ maturation.  During this time, they were regularly topped and racked, before blending and then bottling in August 2023.


Bridge Pa & Gravels

Separate parcels of fully ripened syrah grapes were hand harvested from Te Mata Estate’s Bullnose and Isosceles Vineyards on 12 and 20 March 2022.



The wine is named Bullnose after an early Morris Cowley car, which was nicknamed Bullnose due to its distinctive radiator. The bull emblem that appears on the wine label is drawn from the car’s radiator crest.
