Juniper Crossing 2011 Tempranillo

Here's an impressive follow up to the 2009 vintage which earnt these raves, reviews and medals:
"Just buy some - it's that good. This is a truly exciting red with so much happening in every sip. Elegant, medium weight but with glorious spicy fruit and balancing tannins. Probably the best Oz Tempranillo we've ever tasted as well as one of the reds of 2010.

But don't just take our word for it

'A beautifully subtle and supple expression of this Spanish variety. Lifted spice and blackberry notes on the nose with a savouriness that is appealing. The palate has a dry tannin thread but with some sweet fleshy fruit. It's medium weight and displays excellent palate persistence. Great wine with food. Trophy winner in Perth. 94/100'
Ray Jordan, Fresh, The West Australian, 28 October 2010

Another fine example of Tempranillo! As well as its varietal redberry / blueberry aromas, there's a considerable depth of fruit on the palate which is vibrant and long. This is a wine of finesse and balance to be enjoyed in the short term. Excellent Value.
Highly Recommended
