2015 Stella Bella Cabernet Merlot
Cabernet sauvignon is the King of grape varieties and Margaret River is its natural home in Australia. The pairing of cabernet sauvignon and merlot is well established, and frequently the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Wines from this blend retain the structure and perfume of cabernet sauvignon but gain generosity and richness from the merlot.

Vivid crimson with purple hues.
Typically lifted and aromatic, the fruit characters are bright and charming – redcurrant, dark cherry, cranberry and a violet perfume, with subtle milk chocolate in the background. Enormously appealing.
This medium bodied wine is soft and supple, with the 2014 vintage being more about the cabernet than the merlot. The palate is succulent and moreish with red and blue fruits backed by mocha oak characteristics. The structure is true to cabernet with fine powdery tannins and great length, the smaller than usual percentage of merlot filling out the palate.
82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot.
Lamb tagine with pan fried aubergine and cumin crunch.
Now until 2021.
