The most critical site selection is applied to vineyard sites chosen for growing Stella Bella Chardonnay. Each location adds another dimension to the wine due to the differing soils, aspects, clones and meso-climates unique to the respective sites. Applied to this collection of distinguished vineyards is the inspiration and skill of our winemaking team that draws upon traditional Burgundian winemaking methods and the use of fine-grain French oak to craft a layered, flavoursome and complex wine with the capacity to age gracefully.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant pale lemon with green highlights
The bouquet has a panoply of scents of great intensity and complexity – there is an interplay of the aromatic notes of white flowers, anise and lemon curd with the deeper notes of spicy oak, some yoghurt-like nuances and a hint of struck match.
The deft palate shows both restraint and power. Taut citrus, pear and briny/mineral elements build in the mouth and meld perfectly with the savoury, nutty, fine-grained oak which nevertheless remains unobtrusive. The finish has a pleasant grapefruit-like tang and the signature length of flavour which shows great persistence. A wine of elegance & finesse.
