Who made it?

Juniper Estate was planted by Henry and Maureen Wright in 1973 on Harmans Road South (now known as Tom Cullity Drive), in its picturesque setting along the Wilyabrup Creek. The vineyard grows on the ancient laterite gravelly loam soils that lie over a clay base. Typically the soil of the Wilyabrup region is deep and well drained, and has produced so many of the Margaret River wines which now command Australia-wide and international recognition.

The original Margaret River vineyards were planted without irrigation. Wright's vineyard (as Juniper Estate was formerly known) was no exception and the original 21 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, and Semillon are dry grown. Dry land viticulture is highly regarded for the depth of flavour it produces in the grapes. The relative lack of water during the dry ripening months is thought to concentrate flavour into lower yields of intensely flavoured fruit. Characteristically yields average less than 3 tons / acre.

Mark Messenger has been the Winemaker at Juniper Estate since 1998. He has responsibility for production of all Juniper wines and is supported by an experienced winery and vineyard team. Prior to joining Juniper, Mark was assistant Winemaker at Cape Mentelle, in Margaret River, from 1990 to 1998. Mark's experience lies in producing premium Margaret River wines, using the best quality grapes, oak and other materials, and that is his mission at Juniper Estate.
