Fruit sourced from all three vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon from our Metricup and Wilyabrup vineyards gives depth and length and Merlot (clones 181 & DV314) from Higher Plane gives flesh. Blended according to vintage and usually incorporates Malbec for colour and structure and Cabernet Franc (clone 24) for perfume. The Juniper Crossing Cabernet Merlot is made in a bright fruit driven style with moderate oak influence (15% new French barriques). Aiming for a juicy yet structured wine with cassis and cherry flavours to the fore complexed by a suggestion of mint & cinnamon. Comparable to the wines of Saint-Estèphe.
