The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Bruce Dukes' career dates back over 25 years, its foundations built around a degree in agronomy from the University of WA, followed by a master's degree in viticulture and agronomy from the University of California, Davis, thence to a four-year stint at Francis Ford Coppola's iconic Niebaum-Coppola winery in the Napa Valley. Back in WA he worked with a consultancy and contract winemaking business in Margaret River in 2000. The winery was set up to handle small and large amounts of fruit, but it was not until '12 that he made his own wine under the Domaine Naturaliste label. The quality of all the wines he makes is excellent. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada and China.
Author: James Halliday

Here, Dukes is demonstrating his mastery of the classic Margaret River varietals to fully express their individual and collective characteristics. He is applying decades of locally and internationally gained knowledge about terroir, fruit selection, palate and aroma to produce balanced, complex and delicious wine.
