Bullnose 2016 Reviews

'Wonderfully balanced with fine-grained tannin structure supporting the fruit, along with delicate acidity. The fruit opulence carries the wine to a very long, lingering finish.' 19.5/20 ★★★★★

'Silky texture and flowing mouthfeel, elegantly framed by polished tannins. A magnificent syrah as always. Outstanding.' 96 points ★★★★★

'Bullnose '16 - It has wonderful density and a seductively velvet texture... the wine will age very well indeed.' 96 points ★★★★★

Bullnose '16

Angus Hughson, ‘In The Clouds’ THE AUSTRALIAN, October 2018 Featuring: Bullnose 2016

Bullnose '16 - ‘Bullnose is a superb expression of New Zealand syrah that is almost French in style with charcuterie and white pepper-scented fruits. Savoury, midweight and acid-driven the wine has lovely understated structure and balance – delicious now but also with ageing potential.’

Bullnose '16 - 'Bullnose is one of the oldest Syrah brands in Hawke’s Bay, named after one of the vineyards from which the wine is made. 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. This is a beautiful wine with its deep purple colour and impressive full bodied flavours. The 2016 Te Mata Estate Bullnose Syrah was an aged bottle poured to try. It demonstrates how well Syrah can age because it is still exceptionally youthful even at four years old. The current vintage available is Bullnose ‘18.' 19/20
