Juniper Crossing Shiraz 2017
- Margaret River
- Red Wine
2017 was a cool vintage in Margaret River which has emphasized the pepper and spice character in this wine, which is 85% hand-picked from the oldest unirrigated shiraz vines in the region. The use of some whole bunch and wild ferment has produced a lifted, aromatic, lithe wine with plenty of character that will complement dishes with a touch of spice.
Juniper Estate is a producer of premium wines in Wilyabrup, the heart of the remote, environmentally pristine Margaret River winegrowing area lying in the south west corner of Australia about 270km south of the state capital, Perth. When the vineyard was planted in 1973 (under its original guise of Wright's), it was one of only six Margaret River wine producers. 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. Wilyabrup has established itself since the late 1960s as the most successful sub-region of Margaret River, particularly for red wines; our reds are true to the style of the region, with minimal influence from the winery, and are further testament to Wilyabrup's proven ability to produce wines of the highest quality.
