Stella Bella Cabernet Merlot
Margaret River

Margaret River is Australia's premier Cabernet appellation and Cabernet Sauvignon is without doubt Margaret River's great vinous endowment. Fine Cabernet should be perfumed yet poised, and meticulous site selection is critical to achieving these qualities. Stella Bella is a mostly Cabernet wine with a third of Merlot, all sourced from several select vineyard sites located centrally around the township of Margaret River and north to Cowaramup, in an endeavour to capture ripe fruit flavours yet retain the distinctive perfume of Margaret River Cabernet.

The key selection criteria are all about soil, the best sites consist of lateritic gravels over a clay loam base. The flagship Isa vineyard, just south of Margaret River provides the backbone of fruit. It's signature perfume is ever present in the wine, year in and year out. All the individual vineyard parcels are vinified separately. Following fermentation on skins and completion of malolactic, Stella Bella is treated to a luxurious selection of French tonnellerie's barriques for extended maturation. The length of time ageing is important for the complete integration of oak, fruit and tannins in the final wine. Bottling occurs in May of the second year, followed by several more months of bottle age.
 
Dark ruby. Young, powerful and deliciously ripe Cabernet aromas of cassis and mint with a touch of mocha and toasted oak spice. A rich, lush palate of abundant fruits over hearty tannins, currants and mulberry, blueberries and cassis, the savouryness of dried herb and and a long lingering finish of smoked meat complexity, cinnamons and clove, all supported by an inseparable length of the finest French oak.

Stella Bella take an opportunistic approach, estate vineyards provide much of the fruit but the team are always in search of growers with a Stella Bella vision. Each location must add to the stature and integrity of the finished wine. A collation of harvests, mostly hand picked Chardonnay, including Gin Gin, American and Burgundian clones, grown to the southern precincts of Margaret River. Batches are whole bunch pressed for optimal extraction of free run juices into a selection of seasoned and new Burgundy coopered barrels. Ferments are kept at 25°C to 26°C, stirred regularly until completion of malolactic. Components are assembled after a year in oak and assembled for six months prior to fining and filtration.
 
Limpid white gold hue. Aromas of stonefruits and cashew, white flowers and honey, creme brulee and hay. The palate is savoury and deep, gently viscous with a soft round mouthfeel showing nutty figgy flavours over a citrus twist. Perfectly integrated fine grained oak, natural acidity is fine and on point, soft mineral acidity to finish, making Stella Bella an accompaniement to marron or salmon, smoked duck or brie.

All the good things in life are Stella Bella. Delicately pink and pétillant, fashioned from the ripe and juicy Muscat grape Blanc A Petits Grain, drawing upon the luscious Moscato wine style, sweetly fruity, low in alcohol and lightly fizzy.

Vines are planted to sites at the southern end of Margaret River where climes serve to maximise the heady aromatics characteristic of Moscato. Grapes are ready for harvest when all the berry skins have turned a full and deep rosy brown colour. Grapes are cooled before crushing to the press and remain on their skins for up to a day to extract colour and flavour. After pressing, the juice is settled bright and fermented cold with an aromatic yeast strain. When the desired alcohol level is reached, the fermentation is arrested by rapid cooling in order to maintain natural grape sugars and the carbon dioxide gas evolved during the fermentation process. Bottling occurs in May, just in time for a spring release. Alcohol 7.5%
 
Delicate pink colour. A blushing pink bouquet of exotic fragrances, rose petals, musk and spicy turkish delight. Lightly sweet, delicately fizzy with a bright acidity, full of the fresh flavours of gooseberries and lychee, summer berries and rose water. A zesty fresh acidity to deliver a lithe, fresh and delicate finish. Delightful with pannacotta and raspberry jelly or creamy blue cheese and dried muscatels.
Stella Bella Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
Margaret River
Available by the dozen
Stella Bella is more than a name or a wine, it is an expression, a passion and a summation of things bright, spirited and beautiful. Stella Bella is fashioned to classic Margaret River dry white styling, an assemblage of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, the requisite regional white, displaying all the clean and crisp fruit flavours of each grape. Opulent and intense, a subtle biscuit character from lees stirring and oak. Chill slightly and enjoy alongside goat cheese recipes or marinated, barbecued prawns.

The temperate maritime climes and salubrious soils along Margaret River afford winemakers a palette of flavours and textures to construct the most vivacious wines and to perfect this topical accord of Sauvignon Semillon, the enduring style of classic dry white. Subtle climatic changes and soil diversity along this substantial stretch of coastal land allow for an extensive array of varietal expressions in both Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. It is the region's climatic ability to fully ripen Semillon that sets this genre of wine apart. From this treasure trove of choice, Margaret River's signature blend has evolved. A judicious measure of Russian oak in the Semillon ferment adds texture and vanilla spice. Alcohol 13.5%
 
Pale straw colour. A bouquet of elder flowers, black currants and gooseberry with nettles and sweet herb, yellow and pink citrus zest and just a dash of vanilla pod spice. A bundle of flavours, layers and textures on the palate. Lemon, citrus and limes, crisp, ripe, fresh. Exotic veils of sweet herbs, nettles and gooseberry flavours, stone fruits and cardamom spice. Citrus oil lemon notes on a finish of fruit tingling acidity.

Under the Stella Bella umbrella you will find the small production exotica of a Pink Muscat, the torrid Tempranillo, a feisty Sangiovese Cabernet blend, the classic line up of varietal Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Shiraz, and, the regional signature blends of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Merlot.

Suckfizzle is a small vineyard located at the south-westerly extreme of the Margaret River grape growing region. Here the converging power of the Southern and Indian oceans, provide a cool maritime climate characterised by drenching winter rains and long dry summers cooled by omnipresent sea breezes. In the north-east facing shelter of the Leeuwin Naturaliste Ridge and the Blackwood River, nature provided a unique viticultural mesoclimate for the Suckfizzle wines.

Only two wines are made from the small Suckfizzle Vineyard. The white is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, the percentages a reflection of seasonal fortune. In style, the wine takes its cue from the very great wines of the Bordeaux appellation Pessac Leognan but showcases the inimitable Augusta style. The red is pure Cabernet Sauvignon - Margaret River's greatest natural asset and as a seasoned performer, willing to embrace the challenge of an exciting and new viticultural stage.

The essential substance of wine should always be of grapes and as such, fruit power is the footprint of the Suckfizzle style. The intent of Suckfizzle is to retain in winemaking the fruit character that each vintage brings. Such character is determined by the maturing vines, the seasonal lottery and the honing of viticultural and winemaking skills on the lessons of vintages past. The name, Suckfizzle is drawn from the unique tales of Rabelais (1490 to 1553), the 15th century French monk and medico turned writer and his infamous character the Great Lord Suckfizzle.

Whilst earthy and a touch coarse, Rabelais’ tales were in truth a parody of medieval literature and learning. Yet apart from this tongue in cheek’ nature, Rabelais writings could be enjoyed for their sheer mastery of language - no need to identify a possible meaning or association of every phrase, quotation or place name. And alike, the wines of Suckfizzle (no matter how serious) can be relished for their quintessential fruit power and masterly winemaking. Just as Rabelais has become eponymous for his literary style, Suckfizzle is destined to become so for quality and character in wine.

This antiquated, nautical term for the source of drinking water on sea going vessels has the derived meaning of slang, gossip, chitta chatta, rumour, etc. The site of such life-sustaining liquid on board was also the bed from which the grapevine of social gossip did sprout. The opportunity to catch up with friends over a glass of good wine is the perfect occasion for Skuttlebutt. To keep matters simple Skuttlebutt comes in only three types - a blended red wine and a blended white wine, and a rosé - fresh, youthful, mouth-filling, easy drinking - very social wine. Let it flow!
