Halliday's Top 100 Wines of 2020 - James Halliday is Australia's most respected wine critic and his Top 100 Wines is a snapshot of his pick of Australia's best wine that is eagerly anticipated every year. This year, two of Juniper's wines were selected; here's what James had to say:

95 Points & Special Value Star - Juniper Crossing Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2019

'Bright, clear crimson-purple; this punches way above its weight from the outset. Supple cassis and persistent - but silky - tannins sketch the outline of a wine with freshness and a balance that will sustain its shape for however long you elect to cellar it. Exceptional value. Drink by 2030.'

It is perhaps worth noting here that the Juniper Crossing Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2019 which pairs with the above was also rated 95pts & Special Value earlier in the year and nominated in the Best if the Best section of Halliday's 2021 Wine Companion.


93 Points & Special Value Star - Juniper Crossing Chardonnay 2019

'Hits the target fair and square in a laid-back Margaret River style without the need for new oak. There's depth and complexity in the grapefruit and stone-fruit palate with its faintly funky edge adding interest and length. A very good entry-point wine. Drink to 2026.'
