This wine is usually sourced from fruit off our vineyards on Gnarawary and Rosabrook Roads off especially selected blocks. The parcels are individually vinified and then matured in the best fine-grained French oak. The very best barrels are then blended to create this benchmark wine that is remarkable for its length and depth of flavour. This is a wine that will continue to build complexity with extended cellaring.

Expert Reviews

The hue is not as youthful as that of Suckfizzle despite the lower alcohol; that said, the bouquet and palate are an exercise in varietal purity and precision, the medium-bodied but very long palate with perfectly balanced tannins and integrated oak. Rating 96 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013

Made from the best barrels of the best bits of three vineyards located in the Southern parts of Margaret River. I like the style of Stella Bella – the middle path – whereas some other famed producers seem to have lost their way going too ripe and thus smothering terroir, or too early picked and subjugating it. Fragrant – perfume of gum, aniseed, exotic spices, just the right amount of smooth nutty vanilla cream oak – some coffee and earth – redcurrant and blackcurrant – that just about covers the flavours then. The palate? Medium weight with silty, gravelly controlling tannin – feels good – balanced fresh acidity but no excess. Length to burn. I often write the word ‘regal’ or ‘aristocratic’ when I taste Suckfizzle or Luminosa. Seems to be what pops into my head when I taste, so no change here. The product of a great vintage and the sure hand of man (or woman Reg). Alcohol: 14% Rating 95 - Drink: 2014 – 2029 - Gary Walsh, Wine Front (20/06/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes


Dark red with plum hues, clear and bright.


The aromatic and lifted nose shows dark red fruits, roasting herbs, black and red currants, mocha oak & floral top-notes.


The medium to full-bodied palate has both power and controlled restraint. The flavour is of perfectly ripened, dense fruit, that is distinctly savoury in its expression - flush with finely knit tannins and perfectly integrated oak. There is a poise and effortlessness that comes from the finely balanced elements of fruit, oak, tannin and acidity. The persistence and depth of flavour is profound.


Now and until 2027

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The beginnings of Stella Bella Wines date back to the release of 200 cases of the single vineyard Suckfizzle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon in 1999 by winemakers Janice McDonald and Stuart Pym.

In 2000 the first Stella Bella wine, a Moscato style Pink Muscat was released followed by a Sangiovese Cabernet in 2003. An interest in Italian wine influencing both the choice of name and wine styles.

And the latest addition, Skuttlebutt an everyday drinking style, was released in 2003.

From this modest and eclectic beginning, Stella Bella Wines has experienced rapid growth, broad critical acclaim and a reputation for producing individually crafted Margaret River wines of great expression, personality and quality.

The grafting and crafting of this reputation has been and remains a very hands-on journey for Stella Bella Wines. Both owners and staff alike have worked intuitively and with a high level of self belief and trust in one another.

Our future success is inextricably linked to the Margaret River region and the crafting of the best wines possible from this precious and scarce vineyard resource.
