Juniper Estate Vineyard was planted by Henry and Maureen Wright in 1973 on Harmans Road South, in a picturesque setting along Wilyabrup Creek. The vines are grown to Margaret River's famous gravelly loam soils, which have produced so many Australian flagship wines. During the 19th century the road from Busselton to the south ran through what is now the vineyard and forded the Wilyabrup Creek, hence the Crossing. Parcels of dry grown Shiraz are vinified in open fermenters for three to four weeks, while being treated to a course of plunges and pumpovers. Batches are filled to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for malolactic and fourteen months maturation.
Dense dark purple/ red colour. Bouquets of blackberry, ripe raspberries, dark cherry and plum, a floral lift of violets with a lick of mocha vanillin oak and hints of pepper, liquorice and dark chocolate.
