Tasting Notes:

Still youthfully fresh and tight, the 2018 Chardonnay boasts scents of green peaches and fresh tangerines. The oak is less obvious than in the 2017 in this medium to full-bodied effort. It's slightly broader and more generous than the previous vintage but still finishes long, zippy and fresh, with lingering lime-like flavors.

Tasting Notes:

This has a very pristine style to the nose with a fresh array of stone fruit and citrus, as well as a gently flinty edge and fresh-oak support. The palate has a smooth, glossy feel with very pure, fresh nectarine and lemon flavors, all smoothly honed at the finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Tasting Notes:

More flesh to the bones and definition this vintage and winemaking inputs namely oak. This needs time to settle. Expect stone fruit, lemon zest and curd with a smidge of creamy leesy influence. The palate still has a tautness and sprightly, mouthwatering acidity. Quite delicious.

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.
