Juniper has been producing this bright, fruit-driven style with moderate oak influence and fine ripe tannins for many years now, and it is a wine that consistently punches above its weight. Juniper Crossing Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2017 has structure, fruit concentration and amazing length, breadth and depth of flavour. Much of this is due to the wine maker Mark Messenger's skill with blending small volumes of merlot, malbec, cabernet franc and petit verdot to bring out the best of each vintage. A bottle of this will make next Tuesday night's mixed grill a proper family occasion.
The average price per bottle is only available in a case of 12.
