Stella Bella - Suckfizzle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2010Margaret River Fine Wine
Country of OriginAustralia
- Food MatchMild Fish
- Grape TypeSemillon & Sauvignon
A distinctive and multifarious bouquet of lemon/line preserves sweet herbs, cut grass, gooseberry, mineral/flint talc and toasted oak spice.
The palate is structured by the driving purity of Semillon's citrus fruits then enriched with Sauvignon Blanc's nectarine, gooseberry, passionfruit and sweet herbs. From fermentation and lengthy maturation in oak, the palate acquires an oak veneer, a mineral edge and lemon butter richness.
In time, the tightly woven acidity will soften and the oak will meld with the ample ripe fruit to yield a fine, long living layered and meticulously structured wine.
Food ideas: Poached salmon, natural oysters or chevre.
