Juniper of Wilyabrup are one of the oldest vineyards at the heart of Margaret River. The propitious site was surveyed and defined after a subdivision by one of the nation's most prolific artist families, Ben, Andrew and Robert Juniper. They now produce some of the region's most stately Shiraz wines, Crossing are an entry level, fashioned to a fully approachable easy drinking style, whilst displaying all the sophistication of the estate's opulent icon efforts. The Crossings sound structure and solid weight of fruit make the ideal accompaniement to rich, braised meat recipes.
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.
TASTING NOTES
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. The palate exhibits velvety texture, full of black fruit characters and lively spice, cherries and plum, blackcurrants and blackberry along with hints of violet, white pepper and anise, finishing with fine tannins and lingering flavours.

About Juniper Estate Wines
Juniper Estate is a producer of premium wines in Wilyabrup, the heart of the Margaret River winegrowing area
Juniper is one of the oldest vineyards in the Wilyabrup area. No subregion has been historically more important in the success of Margaret River than Wilyabrup, where the first vineyards were planted and wineries built and which continues to be home to a disproportionately large number of famous, usually small, vineyards. Juniper Estate was planted by Henry and Maureen Wright in 1973 on Harmans Road South, in its picturesque setting along the Wilyabrup Creek. The vineyard grows on the gravelly loam soils, which have produced so many of the Margaret River wines which now command Australia-wide and international recognition. The land has a rich history. In 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” range of wines). It was then part of the group settlement scheme in the years between the World Wars. Juniper Estate»
