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.

Mean and menacing. The Box 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!

WINEMAKER’S NOTE: A deepish red-purple colour with lifted forest berry fruits and cinnamon oak aromas.
A bright spicy palate with fine chamois tannins and dark cherry flavours leading to a balanced dry finish.

VINTAGE: A cool, rather challenging vintage
