Cracka Review

The Serie Luminosa range represents the summit of the mountain for Stella Bella, and this one helluva serious merlot. It's multi-layered and multi-faceted with ripe plums, cassis, mocha and licorice adorning the nose. The palate is full-bodied and giving, with a plummy fruit centre, black berried fruit, firm but slinky tannins, and a dry, juicy, savoury finish. Will stand up to rich meat dishes, and will cellar for another decade!

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Deep crimson.

Nose: Dark red fruits, plums, blackberries, mocha, cocoa, and a touch of aniseed. This is a very complex Merlot.

Palate: Classic Merlot generosity, but still structured and focused. There is abundant fruit flavour here, with high quality oak evident, yet the wine still retains its savoury edge; a clever balancing act. The abundant fruit flavours evolve into an impressive finish, showing fine grained tannins. This wine walks the line of having power and sophistication beautifully. Everything evolves into the next sensation gently and seamlessly. Great length and focus.

Food: Enjoy with dry aged beef, slow cooked lamb shoulder with rosemary and Pasta al Ragù.
