TASTING NOTES 1992
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.
Total acidity as tartaric: 6.5g/l
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.
