Vineyard partners Michael Morris and 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.

Winery Tasting Notes
The striking magenta colour is unusually deep, reflecting the great vintage.
On the nose, beautiful aromas of black and red cherries and raspberries are infused with nutmeg, cinnamon spice and toasty oak.
The palate is rich, ripe and juicy, echoing all the inviting aromas. There is great integration of the fruit and oak with the remarkably fine, even and supple tannins. There has never been a more drinkable and delicious Bullnose on release, and this wine shows every sign of going on to greatness with cellaring. Bullnose ‘13 is beautiful.
