Stella Bella Wines is a small, privately owned wine company, located in the Margaret River region of Western Australia that makes wines under the quixotic names of Stella Bella, Suckfizzle and Skuttlebutt. The Stella Bella Cellar Door is situated 2kms on Rosabrook road, from the Bussell Hwy turnoff, which is only five minutes from the town centre of Margaret River. Critical site selection is applied to vineyard sites for growing Stella Bella Chardonnay. Each location adds to the complexity of the wine due to the soils, aspects, clones and microclimates unique to the respective sites.
Bright straw green highlights; the aromatic complex bouquet and gentle viscous fruit on entry into the mouth. It has an appealing nutty thread on the palate which is very long and persistent. Excellent fruit intensity with a lovely oak and fruit balance with intensity, grip and length of the finish. This is a stunning wine full of elegance, balance and poise and is certain to age gracefully. This wine will be best enjoyed before 2020.
