World Wine – The gorgeously perfumed bouquet shows Black Doris plum, sweet raspberry, violet, olive and toasted almond characters with a whiff of fragrant spice. The palate is concentrated, focused and delightfully flowing with outstanding depth and intensity, while remaining elegant and poised, leading to an extremely long expansive finish. Harmonious, seamless and flawlessly precise. Combining exquisite refinement and undeniable power, this latest offering is another stunning beauty under this iconic label. Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
About This Wine
The last time James Suckling saw the wine, in 2016, he rated the Bullnose in his Top 50 WINES OF THE WORLD calling it “an absolute beauty”.
Deep magenta with an onyx-dark core, Bullnose ’18 has an immediate rich aroma of cinnamon, lavender, ultra-ripe raspberry and black cherry. Lush with plum and boysenberry, the palate has immense depth and is interwoven with black liquorice, spice and velvety chocolate tannin.
A deep delight, the 2018 has a classically beautiful Bullnose purity, replete in detail, with power, a sumptuous dark heart, and a long, structured, elegant finish.
From an incredible vintage, this will be a much sought-after release.
