Expert Reviews

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

Aroma

The nose offers floral spice lift followed by ripe white stone fruit, brioche, river stone, flint and roasted cashew, smoky vanilla oak characters.

Palate

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.
