Te Mata Bullnose Syrah 2019
Te Mata Estate Bullnose Syrah
Region: Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Bottle size: 75cl
Magnificent deep magenta, 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
First planted in 1990, the Bullnose vineyard’s old red iron soils produce Te Mata Estate’s finest Syrah.
Te Mata Estate was established in 1896 and remains family-owned, creating small batches of internationally recognised wines from their Hawkes Bay vineyards and in New Zealand’s oldest wine cellar.
