Heat a grill or grill pan over medium heat. Brush lightly with olive oil.
Grill the peach rings for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until slightly soft with grill marks. Remove from heat.
To assemble the stacks, layer the a piece of mozzarella between 2 slices of peach (or make higher stacks if you like). Repeat with remaining cheese and peaches and arrange on plates or a platter.
Just before serving, drizzle liberally with more olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Top with salt, pepper and the basil.
