Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc or Blend

Celebrations Run High for Stella Bella Fifth Trophy Win!

Last night’s prestigious Royal Melbourne Wine Show Awards saw Stella Bella awarded its fifth trophy in a matter of weeks. In yet another successful salute to Stella Bella’s Suckfizzle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, this small batch 2016 vintage was awarded the Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc or Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

Stella Bella’s Chief Winemaker, Luke Jolliffe says “It is so rewarding to see our wines continue to receive outstanding recognition within Australia and the world stage. Margaret River is a diverse growing region and we are determined to craft the best wines from our southern Margaret River vineyards, full of personality and precision. This is especially reflected in our Suckfizzle wines which perfectly represent their unique sense of place, plus have the ability to live and improve in the bottle.”

This trophy highlights the sheer quality and distinctiveness of this unique single-vineyard wine after the 2015 vintage was named the Best Semillon Sauvignon Blend with 97 points at the 2019 Halliday Wine Companion Awards in August. In addition to its highly acclaimed international recognition of a Platinum Medal and 97 Points at the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards in May this year.

Stella Bella is having one of its most successful years on record, continuing its height of recognition in some of the country’s best wine competitions. The first ever vintage of the Suckfizzle Chardonnay won the Margaret River Regional Trophy for the Best Chardonnay in the 2018 Langton’s James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge, scoring a total 96 out of 100 points.  The 2017 Stella Bella Shiraz dominated the 2018 Wine Show of Western Australia, winning three trophies for the Best Wine of Show, Best Red Wine of Show and Best Shiraz of Show.

Stella Bella was also honoured to receive a Gold Medal for the 2017 Stella Bella Shiraz at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. A Gold Medal for the 2017 Luminosa Chardonnay at the Wine Show of Western Australia. These results represent an unprecedented achievement with the credit going to Stella Bella’s talented and dedicated winemaking and viticultural teams.
