Juniper Aquitaine Blanc 2014 Western Australia Margaret River
The winemaking employed for this wine is designed to tame the overt fruity characters of Sauvignon Blanc into a refined textured structured and complex wine with layers of intrigue. Some of the aromas present remind me of poached pear, apple, quince, grapefruit, melon along with oak and barrel ferment derived almond meal, brioche, cedar and wood smoke. The finely structured palate is smooth, succulent, layered and long. Lemon sherbet, red grapefruit and pear seamlessly interwoven with almond meal, brioche, subtle oak spice with mouth-watering saline acidity and incredibly long persistent finish.
