Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A delicate, light, pale green.

Aroma

Bright and bouncy lemon and citrus blossom aromas are complemented by typical Marlborough minerality.

Palate

A generous and full palate with typical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc flavours of kiwifruit, citrus and a delicate spine of minerality. There is a softness on the palate with its lively mousse and texture due to barrel fermentation of some parcels and time on yeast lees.

Winemaking Note

Base wine for this bubbly Vintage Sauvignon Blanc was aged on lees in tank for three months. Other parcels were transferred to seasoned (neutral) French oak barriques for fermentation and subsequent maturation on lees. This increased complexity and texture in the wine without imparting any oak flavour. The bubbles on the palate bring passionfruit and mineral characters to life with an elegant citrus finish.

Winery Profile

Secret Stone is wine almost as rare as the precious greenstone that inspired its name.

Found in the South Island, greenstone is crafted into beautiful carvings that are passed on from one generation to the next. Like the land itself, they are much treasured and from this much treasured land comes the finest parcels of fruit which have been selected for Secret Stone.

With a plan to hero the premium wines and regions of New Zealand there was no question that the initial focus would be Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand's Marlborough region.

Secret Stone has been passionately created to reflect the distinctive Sauvignon Blanc style for which the region has become well regarded throughout the world - fresh, vibrant and elegant.
