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

Delicate floral aromas of Jasmine and citrus blossom followed by more complex notes from wild yeast and barrel ferment including mineral, flint, smoky oak and cashew. The fruit profile is nectarine, peach and ripe pear. The palate showcases those characters that mark a top form Margaret River Chardonnay; poised, tight with mouthwatering acidity, balanced by fleshy stone fruit with complexity and intensity.

Food Matches

Simple roasted Poulet de Bresse, Turbot served with buerre blance, Langoustine with lemon and pepper butter.
