Why Are They So Fabulous?
Surfing AND wine? We’ll drink to that! Bunkers take their name from the spectacular Bunker Bay; the pristine beauty on the tip of the Cape Naturaliste peninsula in Margaret River, Western Australia. Lefthanders, Honeycombs, Windmills, Guillotines, Bears and The Box make up the Bunkers range – each wine is a reflection of its namesake Margaret River surf break.
From a zippy SBS through to a deep, rich Tempranillo, there is something to suit every taste. These are serious wines…for not so serious people.
Which Wines Should I Try?
Windmills Rosé 2017: Windmills is an exposed beach that mixes fast breaking left and right hander’s for plenty of action. For those wine tastes that straddle red and white styles, the Windmills Rosé may well be the perfect break. Its delicate hue masks complex flavours of summer fruits and winter berries. Breezy!
The Box Tempranillo 2015: Mean and menacing, The Box surf-break throws up thick square barrels that suck out over submerged rocky outcrops. In contrast, there is nothing to fear from The Box Tempranillo. A warm and generous red with nutty oak flavours, it displays spicy hints of the variety’s Spanish heritage. Ole!
Lefthanders SBS 2016: Not for the faint-hearted, the Lefthanders break is a blend of big unpredictable swells with a jagged, rocky finish. The wine of the same name will treat you a lot more kindly. Raise your left hand and savour the freshness and intensity of this crisp Margaret River gem. Goofy footer!
Honeycombs Chardonnay 2016: Consistent summer swells are the secret of Honeycomb’s clean inviting beach breaks. The Honeycombs Chardonnay is equally inviting, with its attractive melon, stone fruit and honey characters. Enjoy the lingering pleasure of a Margaret River summer all year round. No splinters!
