“A blend of two vineyards. It has an effortless power coming through it. It’s textural with oyster shell saline components coming through. It’s just starting to drink at its peak. It just continues to evolve. It’s our best Chardonnay. ”

Tasting Notes

The Serie Luminosa range comprises Stella Bella’s brightest stars; the best wines made in each vintage.

And this 2013 Chardonnay is no exception. It delivers harmonious aromas of lime, pear, orange blossom and cashew that complement the refined, textural and juicy palate. Citrus-fuelled grapefruit and lemon work seamlessly with the nougat and subtle smoky matchstick. It has a long, elegant finish you'll want to remember.

“Margaret River and Yarra Valley, and then comes the rest of the country when it comes to Chardonnay. Good bits are everywhere, but I’d suggest those two regions are the powerhouses for quality. Pleasant amount of struck match, lime, cashew, maybe nashi pear or similar. It’s light, with a slippery glycerol feel, lovely cle ... an acidity that presents just a little tweak and mineral edge, but stays subdued and calming – like a light spring shower on a warm day. There’s a little spicy smoky oak, and a flinty almost (youthful) candied fruit finish of excellent length and definition. Beautiful wine. Can drink now too. Easily. 96 Points, James Halliday.

“Pale straw-green; a wonderful chardonnay, immediately and insistently proclaiming its class; a perfect fusion of fragrant, juicy pink grapefruit, white peach, nectarine, cashew, oak and all-important crisp acidity on the very long finish. ”

“Light to medium yellow hue and a gentle matchstick aroma, mingled with restrained fruit. It's delicate and refined on the tongue, with an array of complexities which include grapefruit, lemon, subtle spices and fresh cashew, the smoky matchstick character is subtle. It's all beautifully balanced. The aftertaste is long and ha ... rmonious. A smashing chardonnay. Show more Show less
