Serie Luminosa , by Stella Bella
Stella Bella Serie Luminosa will always present the very finest selections this winery has to offer. These wines are crafted from an exacting barrel selection process and are, in quality terms, the most outstanding wines that Stella Bella produces. The best dozen or so barriques of each varietal make it to Serie Luminosa. World Class.
The intention was to fashion a wine that is nuanced, complex, combining finesse, elegance, purity and depth of flavour with remarkable persistence. The fruit is 100% hand-picked, there is a degree of wild ferment, extended lees contact and bâttonage to help build texture and savoury elements in to the wine. The palate reflects this with layered flavours of juicy ripe nectarine, a touch of fig and nuances of honey, dairy, almonds and nougat. The texture is glossy with a wonderfully creamy mouth feel complemented by a really fine mineral acidity – the melding of nutty oak and fruit is faultless. A wine of elegance and finesse with dazzling breadth, depth
and persistence of flavour.
