2013 Serie Luminosa Merlot
Being the ‘brightest series’ of our Stella Bella range the quality expected from our Serie Luminosa wines is very high. Therefore the wines may not be produced every year, depending upon the whims of Mother Nature. The 2013 vintage was a stand out for producing merlot grapes of exceptional quality and so the Serie Luminosa Merlot was re-born for the first time in six years. Stella Bella Serie Luminosa wines are crafted from an exacting barrel selection process and are in quality terms the most outstanding wines that we make, representing the very finest selections of our Margaret River vineyards.
Vibrant crimson red.
The nose is bright and punchy. A rich blend of mulberry and raspberry pip alongside the signature Stella Bella red wine characters of nutmeg and chocolatey oak.
Luscious and medium to full bodied with the classic generosity of merlot, a stand out vintage producing merlot grapes of exceptional quality and our first straight varietal since 2007. There is abundant mulberry fruit flavour here, with dark chocolate building through the palate. Everything evolves into the next sensation gently and seamlessly with an impressive finish showing great length, persistence of flavour and gravelly, salivating tannins.
Crispy skinned quail with caramel soy sauce and Asian slaw.
2015 to 2030.
