Overview

Bullnose is one of New Zealand's first and finest syrahs. Produced since 1992 it has always been made from Te Mata's Bullnose vineyard in the Ngatarawa Triangle district of Hawkes Bay. Whilst Bullnose has remained a single vineyard wine, over time its make up has evolved from the original single clone wine to become a multi-clone blend. It has been produced every year except 1994 when the grapes were lost to a hailstorm.

Bullnose is an aromatic, savoury, and elegant expression of syrah which, when well stored, develops and intensifies in bottle for 4-7 years from harvest.

Te Mata Estate has also developed a unique single vineyard from which it produces its Woodthorpe wines.

Te Mata Estate makes wines from hand-harvested grapes from its own vineyards. These vineyards are all located in Hawkes Bay (within 40 minutes drive of the winery) and under the direct control of Te Mata Estate’s viticultural team.
