We had an amazing time at the ‘Pair Your Balls’ Wine + Meatball pairing night at The Meatball Bar Mount Lawley last month. It was such a fun night with the tunes pumping, the wine flowing and ENDLESS meatballs to enjoy. Guests enjoyed 15 delicious meatballs with 5 of our Bunkers Wines that we expertly paired – we will be doing it all again soon so stay tuned!
We are thrilled to announce that Bunkers ‘The Box’ Tempranillo 2013 has been awarded 92 points by James Halliday!
Here is the review;
“Hand-picked, open fermented, 25% matured in new American oak for 1 year before blending with the stainless steel component. Vivid purple-crimson; the wine enters the mouth with a blast of red cherry fruit and vanillin oak, finishing with powdery tannins”

A pink sky while picking our ‘pink wine’! Beautiful morning picking Tempranillo late last week at the Bunkers Wines vineyard for the 2016 Bunkers Windmills Shiraz Tempranillo Rose!
We can’t wait…watch this space!
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!

Bunkers 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!”
