The nose offers an enticing array of stone fruit such as peach and nectarine along with melon. More complex characters of flint, nut meal, honey and spicy vanilla are derived from maturation in French oak barrels on yeast lees. The juicy palate is finely structured with a great depth of fleshy fruit, mealy complexity with everything else in balance with terrific cellaring potential of up to 8 years.
"Margaret River chardonnay is a great Australian wine type and quality is admirably consistent across the region. The '09 Juniper starts off with a rich, complex nose of fig syrup, stone fruits and well-modulated nutty barrel influence. It's lush but not heavy, finising persistently with a whisper of spicy oak. Drink over 2 years. Pan-fried fish; chicken and almond stir-fry. 4.5 Stars - The Age Epicure march 2011"
