2013 Stella Bella Cabernet Sauvignon
Margaret River is arguably Australia's premier cabernet sauvignon grape growing region and Cabernet Sauvignon is without doubt Margaret River's greatest natural asset. Great Cabernet Sauvignon should be both perfumed and poised; meticulous site selection is critical to achieving these key attributes.
Crimson red with purple hues.
The bouquet is rich with inky cassis, redcurrant, maraschino cherry, tobacco leaves and deep fried sage. Subtle mocha and a sweetness from the vanillin oak complement the fruit aromas.
Full bodied with assertive, brick dust tannins. The dense palate is dark and brooding with blackberry, blueberries and couverture. Oak integration is seamless. There is a sense of both elegance and power; the flavours deepen and spread across the palate, freshened with balanced acidity, building to a tight and fine pure cabernet finish.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Barbequed butterflied shoulder of lamb.
Now until 2028.
