Mark Bulman loves wine. Drawing on wide experience from different facets of the industry he has achieved accolades and achievements shared by very few other winemakers let alone someone of his age. His philosophy on winemaking is simple, make delicious wine, wine that will be easily enjoyed, wines that will make you and those around you happy. But a detailed sub-text sits below this simple statement, as he focuses on making wines that speak clearly but uniquely from the place that they were grown. He sees things in sites that others have missed and using his skills make these differences sing.
His wines are crystalline in purity, bright and clean, joy at the foremost yet all are nuanced with layered detail attaching them to their story and site. He draws experience from all the regions he has worked in, but it was his 13 years at Turkey Flat Vineyards where his skill was noticed and accolades claimed. He calls the Barossa Valley home, but deep down wishes he was a native to Gigondas in the Southern Rhone.
