Juniper Estate is a producer of premium wines in Wilyabrup, the heart of the remote, environmentally pristine Margaret River winegrowing area, in the south west corner of Australia about 270km south of Perth. When the estate’s first vines were planted in 1973 (under its original guise of Wright’s) it was one of only six Margaret River wine producers (along with Vasse Felix, Cape Mentelle, Cullen, Moss Wood and Woodlands). No sub-region has been historically more important to the success of Margaret River than Wilyabrup, where the first vineyards were planted and wineries built and which continues to be home to a disproportionately large number of famous, usually small, vineyards.
Juniper was established by the late Roger Hill and his wife Gillian Anderson with the intention of producing wines which rank among the best to come from Wilyabrup and beyond. The red wines are true to the style of the region, and start of the art technology in the winery permits minimal and cautious influence on the wine quality. Grapes are handled and fermented in small batches, before final evaluation and blending and ageing in oak barrels.
Wonderful ripe fruit character of blackcurrant, raspberry, cherry and plums. The palate is deep and rich with juicy mixed berry and plum fruits. Some subtle spice and toasty vanilla hints compliments a long lingering finish.
