Stella Bella Margaret River Chardonnay 2023


Whole bunch pressed and wild fermented with some stylish winemaking in play, this is a Chardonnay dressed in layers of complexity. Fruit is the overlying layer in peach skin, Meyer lemon, grapefruit, quince tart, nectarine. Winemaking and time in oak offers a distinctive cashew nuttiness and buttery overtones. Together, they combine for good depth of flavour and texture. The lovely quince brightness to the palate – with just a little dash of tartness – really strikes a chord. Elegant and fresh.
