Juniper Estate is a producer of premium wines in Wilyabrup, the heart of the Margaret River wine growing area, a remote, environmentally pristine coastal region that lies in the south west corner of Australia about 168 miles south of the state capital, Perth. Its wines are true to the style of the Margaret River region, showing depth, finesse and elegance with careful use of oak providing added complexity.
This wine shows rich ripe fruit characteristics of cassis, raspberry, dark cherry and plum along with toasty mocha and hints of cinnamon spice. The palate is silky smooth with juicy ripe mixed berry fruit flavours, and hints of smoky oak, while balanced fine-grained tannins provide a long and even structure and texture.
A good match for meatballs in a rich tomato ragu on spaghetti with Parmesan.
