Juniper Estate Three Fields Shiraz 2019
- Margaret River
Intense aromas of blackberries, sweet tobacco, cracked pepper and violets. Medium-to full-bodied with firm tannins that are long and intense. Yet, there’s polish and focus to the wine. Finesse, too. So drinkable now, but will improve age. James Suckling, Weekly Tasting Report 5th-11th October 2021 - JS94
Luminous deep red. A beguiling combination of black cherries, damsons, smallgoods, & dried herbs. Medium-bodied, with intense, ripe, dark-skinned fruits, aniseed & white pepper along with other savoury spice notes. Oak influence is subtle, but acidity & fine soft tannins carry the fruit on an impressively long finish - Winemaker's Notes
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.
