Overview

Margaret River Semillon is very distinctive and at Juniper Estate we are aiming to produce a fine elegant complex wine with medium term cellaring potential from this wonderful variety. The use of “free range” yeast, barrel fermentation in tight grained French oak and maturation on yeast lees are used to build texture and structure along with a touch of smoky complexity without dominating the fruit characters and maintaining elegance in the wine.

The 2011 vintage has turned out to be quite a fine one even though it started with a rush. The summer was quite warm and picking happened very quickly to capture the right flavours and maintain natural acidity in the grapes. This wine will cellar well for up to 10 years.
