Stella Bella Sauvignon Blanc 2012

  • $23.00*

The cooler maritime climate of the southern reaches of the Margaret River region produces Sauvignon Blanc of great varietal purity and exactness. Not as exuberant perhaps as the Marlborough expression, but not as austere as that of Adelaide Hills, this wine is great alongside; goat cheese ravioli with herbed tomato sauce or oysters on the half shell.
Winemaker Notes

Appearance:
Palest yellow in colour with a green hue and diamond bright.

Aroma:
Lifted ripe aromas of green apple, orange and grapefruit blossom in the glass, with underlying notes of guava, feijoa, freshly torn herbs, gunflint and an oak‐derived allspice character.

Palate:
In the mouth the wine shows great intensity, followed by impressive length. Subtle oak imparts weight to the mid‐palate as well as texture. The palate is sinewy with superb line and brisk acidity. The concentrated flavours of ripe white nectarine and passionfruit pulp are balanced by a noticeable citrus element followed by a dry mineral finish.
