Tasting Notes:

Distinctive and charming, this smooth red starts out spicy, blending white pepper, cigar box, espresso and mahogany details into the core of cherry and blood orange flavors, finishing with an aromatic accent of rose petal. Drink now through 2030. 1,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.

Tasting Notes:

There's a reason why Margaret River is better known for Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, and while Stella Bella's 2018 Shiraz is a solid wine, it's clearly second (or third) fiddle. Aromas of bay leaf and sage set off tart blackberry flavors, accented with hints of cedar and vanilla. It's medium-bodied and streamlined, with a crisp finish.

Tasting Notes:

This has attractively fresh, red-plum aromas with a gently spicy edge. The palate is so softly delivered with a lick of spicy oak adding warmth to the finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Tasting Notes:

Intense inky purple; an in-your-face-style with mawkish flavours, reduction and oak. The palate rich and syrupy. Disappointing.

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.
