Making Bunnamagoo

Grapes destined for Bunnamagoo Wines are hand-picked into small bins, to save the first juice. Each vintage is pondered and the vigneron’s and the winemaker’s personal responses are discussed while the grapes are still on the vine.

After vintage the wines are given the vital ingredient so often omitted in modern wine-making: time. Time to slowly mature and develop before bottling and release. The procedure is as far as possible from factory methods with each decision from the timing of harvest to the time of release being made with a view to ensuring the integrity of the wine rather than being driven by economic considerations. Each of the wines is released in very small quantities. The vintages regularly sell out and may be hard to find.

Bunnamagoo produces a truly great Chardonnay of depth and complexity. The elegant Cabernet Sauvignon has an individuality rarely seen in these times of mass-produced wines. Those with the patience to allow it time to develop in the cellar will be rewarded as it opens up to reveal its full character. 

Bunnamagoo released its first sparkling wine in 2005, a Pinot Noir-Chardonnay made from the 2003 vintage. This sparkling wine was made according to traditional methods and finished by some of Australia’s foremost sparkling wine experts under the supervision of Andrew Hardy at Petaluma in the Adelaide Hills. Following the success of this vintage Bunnamagoo has continued to release small quantities of the wine every year.

The 2005 vintage produced an expansion to the Bunnamagoo range. A fusion of Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon was made exclusively from Eurunderee fruit. Blending different grape varieties follows the approach employed in Burgundy and Bordeaux where the focus is on ultimate quality rather than on varietal consistency. 2005 also saw Bunnamagoo’s first botrytis Semillon, Semillon and Shiraz vintages from Eurunderee vineyard.

In 2009 the Bunnamagoo “1827” special reserve Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon were released from the excellent 2007 vintage at the Bunnamagoo vineyard. The name 1827 was chosen to commemorate the date of construction of the historic Bunnamagoo homestead which is depicted on the Bunnamagoo label.

While the meticulous methods and judgements of European artisans have been followed, local conditions mean the results are without direct equivalents in other countries and results in truly memorable wine.
