Te Mata Estate Bullnose Syrah 2015

100% fully-ripened Syrah hand-harvested from Te Mata Estate’s vineyards in the Hawkes Bay region. 

Individual lots were each destemmed and given a traditional warm-plunged fermentation. The resulting wines underwent extended maceration on skins before pressing and then a secondary malolactic fermentation. The separate wines were then run to a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barriques for 15 months’ maturation. During this time they were regularly topped and racked before egg-white fining, blending and bottling.

Winemaker's Comments

A deep impressive magenta in colour, this 2015 vintage lifts sumptuous berry-fruit across dark star anise, violets and allspice. Classic Bullnose aromas jump from the glass: ripe, velvet tannins run the length of a palate that flashes with raspberry, espresso and cherry. Fresh, elegant, precise and gorgeously drinkable!

    Cuisine Magazine Wine 2017:
    "If there was Kiwi wine aristocracy, Te Mata would be it. Nestled in the foothills of the Te Mata heritage zone, they make some of the best wines in the country. Independent, family-owned, exclusively Hawke's Bay, and committed to making premium wine on site."
