Juniper

Western Australia | Margaret River

Our Review

Roger Hill and Gillian Anderson purchased the Wrights’ Wilyabrup property in 1998, driven by the 25yo vineyard with dry-grown cabernet as the jewel in the crown. They also purchased complementary vineyards in Forest Grove (Higher Plane) and Wilyabrup; the vineyards are sustainably farmed using organic principles. Sons Nick and Tom (formerly a winemaker in the Yarra Valley) are now running the business. The Juniper Crossing and Small Batch wines are sourced from the 3 vineyards, while the Single Vineyard releases are made only from the original vineyard on Tom Cullity Drive. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Singapore and Hong Kong.

About

Juniper is a producer of premium wines in Margaret River, the heart of the remote, environmentally pristine winegrowing area lying in the south-west corner of Western Australia, 270km south of Perth. With its maritime influence, ancient soils and beautiful landscape, Margaret River is perfectly suited to the production of great wines. The Juniper ‘Estate’ vineyard (formerly Wright’s) was planted in 1973 and, together with Vasse Felix, Cape Mentelle, Cullen, Moss Wood and Woodlands, is one of the founding vineyards of the region. Juniper was established in 1998 by the late Roger Hill and his wife Gillian Anderson with the intention of producing wines which rank among the best to come from Margaret River and beyond. Since 2017 Gillian and Roger’s sons, Nick and Tom, have run the business with the same ambition to make great wines from our own vineyards. Mark Messenger is the inaugural and current Chief Winemaker and, through sensitive, thoughtful and adaptive winemaking, allows the personality of the vintage and vineyard to be expressed. Juniper’s outlook combines the tenets of heritage, authenticity and original thinking with a view to producing wines of elegance and sophistication that showcase the best of the Margaret River region. A deep respect for the history of the region and the pursuit to push boundaries drives our outlook in creating wines that reflect their time and place.
