A beautifully light and slightly frizzante wine - perfect for summer sipping. This Pink Muscat from Stella Bella is full of gorgeous red berry flavours with a hint of vanilla and a fresh and delicate finish.

Say what you will about a Cabernet Sauvignon with 18% alcohol, ultimately it is balance that counts. The fruit is sourced from the Greenock region of the Barossa, one of the Valley’s premier terroirs, and the 2005 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Opaque purple-colored, it offers an Amarone-like perfume along with smoky oak (100% new Taransaud oak was used), scorched earth, licorice, cassis, black currants, and blackberry liqueur. Huge and super-rich as well as velvety-textured, this is a true “seat-belt” wine in which notes of chocolate intermingle with spicy black fruits. It is, without doubt, a unique expression.

The 2005 Shiraz “Greenock Block” is opaque purple-colored with aromas of pain grille, black pepper, scorched earth, blueberry compote, and blackberry liqueur. Intense and layered, this full-bodied effort packs a punch. There are gobs of fruit and plenty of tannin under the surface. This unsubtle but powerful wine can be cellared for several years and will drink well through 2020.

Significantly more powerful and intense than its Farr Rising sibling. This is the big dog of the trio, with everything needed for a 20-year future.

The 2013 Chardonnay is exotically scented of guava, green mangos and pineapple with savory suggestions of marmite toast, buttered popcorn and roasted almonds plus a hint of struck flint. Medium-bodied with a gorgeous silky texture, it has wonderful purity and sophistication, finishing long and harmonious.

Typical bright, deep hue; the bouquet exudes flowers (roses, violets), spices and a throbbing heartbeat of gently savoury dark fruits; the palate magically twists all these characters into a single silver-coated stream of red and blue fruits, the tannins no more than background haze, oak a slender frame. A gorgeous pinot of the highest category.
