Tasting Notes:

Hints of sage and bay leaf join bell pepper and cassis on the nose of the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon. It's medium to full-bodied, smooth and silky, with a tart, lingering finish. It's a gently tannic red for drinking over the near term.

Tasting Notes:

Very polished blue fruit and plums on the nose here with gentle, cedary-oak influence, as well as herbs and leafy freshness. The palate is smooth and supple with power and charm, delivering plenty of blackcurrant flavor amid bright, crunchy acidity. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Tasting Notes:

This is clamped down and tightly so across the palate. It opens up with mulberries, tomato leaves, iodine/nori and lots of menthol reflecting the region but more so a cooler vintage. They all sit comfortably enough, but sinewy tannins and vanillin oak pucker the finish. Still youthful and bright so this might settle in time.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Stella Bella Wines is an Australian winery based at Margaret River, in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. The winery was established in July 1996, when Stuart Pym, then a winemaker at Voyager Estate, and Janice McDonald leased a vineyard, with investor support. Its first wines were produced during the 1997 vintage. By 2009, Australian wine writer James Halliday was rating the winery as one of the Margaret River region's best. Stella Bella has four brands. They range from Skuttlebutt, an everyday wine launched in 2004, through the classic Stella Bella and premium / ultra-premium Suckfizzle ranges, to the winery's most exalted brand, Series Luminosa, launched in 2010.
