Juniper was established by the late Roger Hill and his wife Gillian Anderson with the intention of producing wines which rank among the best to come from Wilyabrup and beyond. Wilyabrup has established itself since the late 1960s as the most successful sub-region of Margaret River, particularly for red wines. When the vineyard was planted in 1973 (under its original guise of Wright's), it was one of only six Margaret River wine producers (along with Vasse Felix, Cape Mentelle, Cullen, Moss Wood and Woodlands).
"Bright, clear crimson-purple; this punches way above its weight from the outset. Supple cassis and persistent - but silky - tannins sketch the outline of a wine with freshness and a balance that will sustain its shape for however long you elect to cellar it. Exceptional value." 95pts - James Halliday - Wine Companion
"It’s a medium-weight wine but there’s a bit of grunt to the finish and that’s a good thing. Fire up the grill and sink into a bottle of this and you’re away. Currants, chocolate, violets and bay. It’s ripe, inviting and satisfying. It made a fan of me." 92pts - Campbell Mattison - WineFront
