2013 Juniper Estate Shiraz

Halliday 93/100


Color, nose and palate


On the nose this wine offers enticing fruit characters of blackberry, raspberry, plum and blueberry mixing with subtle oak aromas, coffee,
spice and vanilla. The medium bodied palate is intense with ripe fruit flavours and savoury complexity. Blackberry, cherry, blueberry and
plum flavours intermingle with spice, pepper and dusty tannins which will mellow with more time.

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

Winemaker’s comments


The 2013 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 2013 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. Structure, complexity and depth of quality fruit are the key goals with this wine.
