Juniper Small Batch Tempranillo 2017

The first Juniper wine I tasted, possibly some ten years ago when friends shared a bottle back in the day. If only serves to show how long Juniper have been playing with a variety that can be very hit and miss in Australia. 

Carries the Berry driven lines of Tempranillo, with that furtively lurking savoury undercurrent, just present. 

Cherry, a tart Blueberry pop, a creamy vanilla sweep. A rasp of tannin that casts across the palate, long and fine. Cocoa powder finish. 91
