Muscat Margaret River Western Australia
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. The cherub rose blush hue of the gorgeous little berries is expressed sumptuously in the wine's captivating colour, effulgent flavours and bedazzling bouquet. Drink from chilled flutes and match with tasty nibbles or cheeky desserts.
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.
