2015 Stella Bella Shiraz
With historic connections to ancient Persia and indigenous roots in the Rhône, Shiraz has an impressive past full of legend and myth. Nonetheless its greatest attraction is its ubiquitous appeal. The temperate maritime Margaret River climate produces a style which is elegant, bright in fruit and delicate in spice.
Vibrant magenta with a purple hue.
The intense aromas jump out of the glass, abundant with mulberries, plum and cherries. Followed by light delicate spices of clove, cinnamon and white pepper in the background.
This delectable medium bodied wine is best described as ‘Crunchy Bunchy’ (Jolliffe, 2017). Crazy? We know! But there is no other way to describe the plush, round, fine, silky and juicy texture of this wine, not to mention the intensity of flavour and pretty finish. It is like it has been meticulously refined, with good weight, softness, flavour and breadth across the whole palate, with a salivating finish!
97% Shiraz & 3% Viognier.
