Overview

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. Control of the winemaking process is critical in making premium wine, and Juniper has a state of the art winery and a temperature controlled barrel room built in 1999. The winery, with modern refrigeration and storage equipment, ensures optimum treatment of our fruit. We process in small batches which are treated separately, evaluated and blended – a truly boutique operation.

Our wines are made in the Margaret River style of depth and elegance, with careful use of oak providing added complexity.

Expert Reviews

95 Points Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine Dec/Jan 2017 Issue

Light to medium straw yellow hue and a subtly nutty barrel-fermented bouquet, the oak has been beautifully handled and the wine finishes nutty, dry and savoury, with a long carry and a clean, lip-smacking aftertaste. Drink 2016 to 2024

94 Points James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2017

Full Bordeaux blend. Made to cellar. No compromise to 'early drinking'. Strung with tannin and dried herbs but with ample fruit laying in reserve. A wine with a clear plan and purpose in life. Time the last piece in the puzzle. Drink by 2032

94 Points Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2017

This excellent wine gets plenty of winery treatment. It's pressed into barriques where it sits on lees for 10 months after natural fermentation. The result is exquisite with so much flavour and intensity. Lemony vanillin creaminess with a drizzle of lime to spruce it up. Sits so well in the mouth. Bracing closing finish. Cellar 8 years

Juniper Estate is a producer of premium wines in Wilyabrup, the heart of the Margaret River winegrowing area. It is one of the oldest vineyards in the area. No sub-region 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.
