Overview

Parcels from each vineyard were harvested and kept separate upon arrival at the winery. The first parcel was crushed and allowed to settle over a thirty six hour period. The resultant juice was then fermented with a selected strain of yeast in stainless steel tank. The second parcel of fruit, was crushed and then inoculated on full solids with a very low rate of a selected yeast strain. The next day this juice was then transferred to seasoned French oak barriques for fermentation and subsequent maturation on lees to increase texture and complexity. The two parcels were then blended together after six months for final blending.

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.
