Stella Bella Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Margaret River, Western Australia   |    750ml   |    13%
Over the past decade Stella Bella has established itself as one of the shining lights of Margaret River wine, always delivering top-line examples of Margaret River's signature varieties. This 2017 Stella Bella Sauvignon Blanc is an example of the highest quality; fresh, balanced and beautifully structured, there's an abundance of tropical fruit flavours, minerality and a crisp, dry finish.

50% is fermented in tank, 50% is fermented in barrel. It’s grown in the cool south of Margaret River. It’s very good. Intense, textural, classy. Passionfruit, steel, woodsmoke and thistle. It cuts, slides and runs. Just enough zip, just enough mouthfeel. You can see (and feel) the oak influence but only just. It remains succulent. Clear thumbs up.

Margaret River
Stella Bella Sauvignon Blanc has a distinctive style thanks to its southern Margaret River origin. Loaded with punchy tropical fruits and floral aromas, the palate is fresh and full of flavour with a fine mineral acidity.

Place: Our sauvignon blanc vines are planted throughout our collection of southern Margaret River vineyards providing the ability to capture strong varietal character and maintain high natural acidity. Using a combination of sites provides great varietal complexity.

Vintage 2017: Cooler temperatures and some unusual rainfall required diligent viticulture to ensure the fruit was in perfect condition. This resulted in the development of ripe flavours at low sugar levels and high natural acidity in Sauvignon Blanc, providing the perfect balance to create an aromatic and precise wine.

Winemaking: The full flavoured fruit from our southern Margaret River vineyards were picked between12-12.5o Baume. 50% of the individual batches were pressed to tank and the other 50% were specifically selected for barrel fermentation and battonage. Creating the perfect balance of explosive varietal perfume, complex flavours, palate texture and refreshing natural acidity.

Appearance: Pale straw with green hues.

Aroma: An explosion of passionfruit, guava, lime pith and grapefruit with a subtle savoury nuttiness and flint character from barrel the barrel ferment.

Palate: This wine dances across your palate, filling your mouth with the perfect balance of tropical fruit flavours and fine, focused mineral acidity.

Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
