Two Te Mata Winery vineyard partners, the late Michael Morris and winemaker 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.
Magnificent deep magenta, Bullnose ’21 entices with floral fragrance of lavender, violets and a dusting of cardamon and cinnamon developing on the palate into black cherry syrup, boysenberry and Turkish delight. Grace notes of char, truffle and pink peppercorns appear in layer upon layer of velvet tannins that run from front to back in the wine – extending the mid-palate presence into a long, sustained finish of saturated and spiced red berries. Bullnose ’21 is endlessly enchanting from every angle.
