Stella Bella Luminosa Chardonnay is hand-crafted in small batches to create the best wine of each vintage. Subtle and restrained yet full of flavour and lively on the palate. This wine is young at heart and will evolve gracefully over time.
Created to showcase the feminine, subtle and elegant wines of our southern Margaret River vineyards. Every bottle tells a unique story of the vineyard, the variety and the vintage at that specific moment in time.
Cooler temperatures and some unusual rainfall required diligent viticulture to ensure the fruit was in perfect condition. This resulted in the development of ripe flavours at low sugar levels and high natural acidity in Sauvignon Blanc, providing the perfect balance to create an aromatic and precise wine.
Each small batch of handpicked fruit was whole bunch pressed to extract the free run juice then roughly settled. Fermentation followed in 100% French oak (33% new) using 100% wild yeast to encourage the natural complexity and texture. Battonage was undertaken when required, according to taste.
