Juniper Estate Crossing Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2015
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.
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 Crossing wines fulfill a different purpose from the Estate wines. They are our more easy drinking style with an appropriately lower price tag. We would like them to be enjoyed every day while the Estate wines remain the pinnacle of our ambitions, spending more time in oak (in the case of the reds) and being released later.
Pale green in colour, this expressive wine shows aromas pear, gooseberry, melon, citrus blossom, green apple and passionfruit with background notes of smoked cashews and fresh herbs. The mouth filling palate is smooth and very textural, full of juicy fruit with subtle hints of herbs, spices and crunchy acidity.
