Juniper

Western Australia | Margaret River

Our Review

Roger Hill and Gillian Anderson purchased the Wrights' Wilyabrup property in 1998, driven by the 25-year-old 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 three vineyards, while the Single Vineyard releases are made only from the original vineyard on Tom Cullity Drive. Exports to the UK, the US, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.

About

Juniper is one of the original Margaret River vineyards nestled in the picturesque Wilyabrup valley. The vineyard was planted in 1973 when it was known as Wright's and was one of the pioneering Margaret River wine producers. It is farmed sustainably, following organic principles and dry-grown (unirrigated) to this day. The present vineyard block was created through subdivision by the well-known Western Australian artist family, the Junipers, after whom it is now named. It’s a hands-on operation – the vines are hand-pruned and hand-picked, and the wine hand-made. Juniper, Margaret River 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.
