STELLA BELLA MARGARET RIVER CHARDONNAY
From the world class region of Margaret River in Western Australia, Stella Bella Chardonnay encompasses all that is great with this variety in this region.
Rarely in other regions of Australia does Chardonnay hit the heights like in Margaret River, with the cooling influence of the sea and an ideal climate producing wines of balance, structure and length. These are wines were a glass is rarely enough, they are so moreish.
Stella Bella Chardonnay is that and more, with an elegant yet powerful nose of ripe pineapple, apricot and cream, followed by a wonderfully balanced palate with a twist of minerality on the finish, which seems to go on and on and on.
A cracking wine and ideal for those wanting to experience what a true Australian Chardonnay should taste like. If they were all like this, no one would drinking Sauvignon Blanc any more.

Matured in French oak for 12 months. Stella Bella cruises effortlessly these days, this wine a prime example. Nothing is overplayed, allowing the peach and nectarine flavours free expression, yet also providing texture and gentle complexity.
