While the brands are differentiated by sub-regions, vineyards, style, price and curious names, the objective is always to create wines of expression, personality and interest with an emphasis on unique imaging.
The Stella Bella Cellar Door is situated 2kms on Rosabrook road, from the Bussell Hwy turnoff (only five minutes from the town centre of Margaret River).
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.
