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.
Awards & Reviews
Vivid crimson with purple hues.
Typically lifted and aromatic, the fruit characters are bright and charming – this Cabernet Merlot packs a punch! With redcurrant, mulberry, satsuma plum and a violet perfume, the background has milk chocolatey yumminess.
This medium bodied wine is soft and salivating, with the 2015 vintage being more about the cabernet than the merlot. The palate is succulent and moreish with raspberry and mulberry 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.
Slow roasted duck marylands, with braised red cabbage and hazelnuts.
Now until 2022.
