Juniper Estate is a producer of premium wines in Wilyabrup, the heart of the Margaret River wine growing 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 large number of famous, usually small, vineyards.
No quality wine can be made without quality fruit, which requires the utmost care and attention in the vineyard, where re-trellising, restoring and planting, and canopy management all play their part in ensuring the finest quality fruit. The vineyard is hand pruned and the grapes are hand picked at harvest. All vineyards are dry grown or the depth of flavour it produces in the grapes.
Juniper aims to produce Estate wines which rank with the best wines to come from Wilyabrup. The area has established itself over more than 30 years as the most successful sub-region of Margaret River, particularly for red wines.
Juniper has a state of the art winery and winemaking is aimed towards the Margaret River style of depth and elegance, with extensive use of new oak giving the wines added complexity.
For the past three years Juniper Estate has been rated by James Halliday as a 5 Star Winery – one of Australia’s best!
