Fruit driven and approachable
Bunkers celebrates some of Margaret River’s greatest surf breaks. The region is a magnet for both wine lovers and surfers from all over the world.
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!

WINEMAKER’S NOTE: Pale green colour with bright lifted fruit aromas. The palate is refined and elegant and delicate citrus fruit flavours and generous middle palate. Fine acidity provides terrific length of flavour all the way to the finish.
VINTAGE: Our 2016 vintage conditions were exceptional for these varieties.
VINEYARDS: Our vineyards are in northern Margaret River with soils of mostly fine clay loams over ironstone. All vines are vertically shoot positioned and run in north south aspect.
VINIFICATION: Picked in the cool of night, grapes were cold pressed, and the bright juice fermented in steel. The wine was clarified and held cold until bottling. Bottled early to retain freshness.
