Stella Bella Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2016
87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot
Red, with purple hues.
Violets, Satsuma plums and glazed cherries lift out of the glass in an
explosive fashion. Followed by aromas of red currants, raspberries and
subtle vanillin oak with a hint of smokiness.
Juicy, medium bodied and full of flavour. Red currants, cherries and
blueberries fill the palate complemented by the dusty fine-grained
tannin and precise structure. The refreshing acidity balances the supple tannin and red fruits for an extremely smash-able wine that leaves you wanting more.
