Selective hand picking, gentle whole bunch pressing directly to barrel, wild or ‘free range’ yeast and no amelioration of the juice are all aimed at producing a complex yet naturally balanced wine with a cellaring potential of up to 10 years.

In the hallmark Juniper style, where all the complexity of the winemaking approach melts like ice in the noon day sun, leaving a perfectly formed, perfectly balanced and elegant chardonnay that simply needs time to burst into full song. James Halliday, Rating 95, 27th July 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
The nose offers floral spice lift followed by ripe white stone fruit, brioche, river stone, flint and roasted cashew, smoky vanilla oak characters.
The palate is opulent while still being restrained by the fine natural acidity and nutty, spice, savoury characters from the oak. The flavours are a complex mix of mouth-watering citrus, apple, pear, stone fruit, vanilla oatmeal biscuit, crème brûlée, and caramel cashews.
