Vintage at Bunkers

February 3rd, 2016

And so the vintage at Bunkers kicks off…with 37 backpackers picking about 8 tonnes of Semillon for the Bunkers Sparkling! As for the rest of the ingredients, we hope to pick around 10 tonnes of Chenin Blanc on Friday.

We had 60mm of rain on the 19th and 20th of Jan and it has worked more in our favour than against us which is great! With the reds going through veraison, a big drink was just what they needed to help them colour up evenly and in some soil types they may need no more water to get them to harvest. Most of our white varieties stood up to the rain as they were still a bit hard and green, so a good freshen up from the rain and away we go! Some areas were less fortunate than Margaret River receiving up to 200mm of rain leading to split fruit and a big increase in disease pressure.

Up until this point it has been a fantastic growing season with very little rain, lots of sunshine, with very few prolonged bursts of heat.

So fingers crossed it now stays dry and warm right to the end!

Yes Way Rose!

January 20th, 2016

A9R6C95Bunkers is very pleased to announce that the Urban List Perth has included the 2015 Bunkers Windmills Rose in this years list of the top 5 Roses to be drinking this summertime! Here’s what they had to say about a wine we are very proud of;

“Ahh I love this little surfie winery (they name each of their wines after a surf break down south) and their focus on serious wines for not so serious people. Pale salmon-pink in colour, this rosé is bold and a little bit spicy but still perfect for getting your summertime drank on. It’s a good one to accompany a big meal, as opposed to drinking it on it’s own!”

Thanks,

2015 Margaret River Gourmet Escape

December 9th, 2015

The 2015 Margaret River Gourmet Escape is all done and dusted for another year…and what a weekend it was!

Our Bunkers Bar was pumping this year with our DJ playing awesome beats, peach sparkling Bellini’s flowing and our wines were walking out the door. In particular, our Bunkers shiraz tempranillo rose was a hit! The weather was warm and sunny this year on both days, although this didn’t stop the eager punters from trying our Bunkers range.

Here are some photos from our great weekend down south!

Halliday Wine Companion 2016 Results…

August 3rd, 2015

Hi Everyone,

We are so pleased with our results in the latest Halliday Wine Companion Guide. Please see below;

Guillotines Shiraz 2013 – 92 POINTS

Slightly reductive, but good value drinking. Plum, charcoal and spice, fresh and modern, with enough power to satisfy without being heavy of syrupy.

The Box Tempranillo 2013 – 92 POINTS

Open-fermented, 25% matured in new American oak for 1 year before blending with the stainless steel component. Purpe-crimson the wine enters the mouth with a blast of red cherry fruit and vanillan oak, finishing with powdery tannins.

Lefthanders Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2014 – 91 POINTS

Plenty of fruit around its belly but it still manages to cut a fine figure. Lemongrass, gravel and tropical fruit with a textual element and good push of flavour towards and through the finish.

Honeycombs Chardonnay 2014 – 90 POINTS

Night harvesting and cold-pressed clear juice fermented in French oak results in a fresh, fruit-driven style with white peach and melon flavours to the fore.

Bears Cabernet Merlot 2013 – 89 POINTS

To purchase any of these wines, please call us on (08) 9368 4555 or go to our online store.

Thanks,

The Bunkers Team
