Color, nose and palate

 

Dark and dense in colour, the 2008 is packed with dark, ripe fruit characters of plum, cherry, blackberry and raspberry with mixed spices and mocha. The palate is full with fleshy plum and blueberry balanced by savoury, spicy liquorice flavours.

Cellaring potential: Structure, complexity and depth of quality fruit are the key goals with cellaring potential of at least 8 years.

Description

Winemaker’s comments

 

The 2008 Juniper Estate Shiraz is made 100% from our Estate dry grown vines planted in 1973 and hence is a single vineyard wine representing the best portions of wine that reflect the nature of the site and the weather conditions of the 2008 vintage.

To make this wine the grapes were hand-picked in several batches, de-stemmed, sorted & cold soaked prior to fermentation. Following barrel maturation in batches for 18 months, individual barrels were selected to create the final blend.
