Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant grape of this wine region, perched on the southernmost edge of Western Australia. This area is as New World as it gets, with the first vines not having been planted here until the 1960s. Previously, most wine in this part of the continent had been grown in Swan Valley just north of Margaret River, but vineyard pests and diseases drove Australian winemakers to look for new growing regions.

The crimson Stella Bella has silky tannins so it feels smooth on the mouth, while also being so fragrant that the scent of flowers floats from the top of the glass. Favorable weather in this young wine region allowed the grapes to relax a little bit, creating an easy-drinking, laid back vintage.
Ripe raspberries with soft floral notes and a dash of pumpkin pie spices.

Mouthwatering yet silky smooth, just like a bite of a milk chocolate bar with a raspberry center.
