Juniper Estate

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.

Tasting Notes

The nose shows ripe fruit characters such as raspberry, blackberry and plum combining liquorice, black pepper, cured meat and a hint of dark chocolate. The fine yet structured medium bodied palate is juicy with fruit flavours of blackberry, plum and raspberry with liquorice, spice and black pepper while the dusty tannins provide backbone and length to the finish.

Food Matches

How about trying mildly spiced oxtail stew with herby mash?
