Stella Bella Luminosa Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2022


A fine example of the poise and beauty that Margaret River brings to the Cabernet grape. It’s a slow reveal, quite tantalising, and so artfully laid out before the drinker with so much left for a later date. Luminosa is always built with a big future in mind. However, the brightness of the wine, its youthful clarity, does not preclude enjoyment right now. Dark berries, star anise, cassis and woodsy spice with a gentle, slowly winding feature of leafiness that never exceeds its role, but serves as a reminder that this is, after all, a classic Cabernet. Tannins are fine, bringing structure and the kind of support needed for its long journey ahead. Pitch perfect Cabernet.
