2016 Stella Bella Chardonnay

Background

The most critical site selection is applied to vineyard sites for growing Stella Bella Chardonnay. Each location adds to the complexity of the wine due to the soils, aspect, clones and microclimates unique to the respective sites. Applied to this rich collection of unique vineyards is the inspiration and skill of our winemaking team that draws upon traditional Burgundian winemaking methods and the use of fine grain French oak to craft a layered, flavoursome and complex wine with the capacity to age gracefully.

Tasting Note

Appearance

Bright pale straw.

Aroma

An expressive and complex nose with a perfect balance of fresh fruit and savoury complexity. Aromas of freshly crushed lime, nectarine, peach fuzz, and candle wax lift out of the glass. Balanced by subtle roasted hazelnut and flinty aromas from barrel fermentation in the finest quality French oak.

Palate

The delicious and intense fruit combination continues on the palate, with our signature spring water, mineral acidity. This creates focused length, with phenolic drive. Not too heavy, nor too light, the textural finish has a lingering nuttiness and complexity that will have you wanting more…

Blend

100% Chardonnay.

Food

Char-Grilled Chicken with Prosciutto and Peaches

Drink

Now to 2026.
