Palate

The palate is rich and full, with flavours of dark cherries intertwined with creamy French oak. The soft and subtle tannins give structure and length to this elegant wine.

Cellaring Potential

Enjoy on release, this wine will develop further complexity over three years.

Winemaking Note

Individual parcels were cold soaked and fermented separately in open top fermenters. The wine was plunged three times per day and left on skins to help build tannins. Malolactic fermentation was completed in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels along with some unoaked parcels retained - with the objective of adding complexity and layers to the wine. The parcels were then matured for a further 5 months before 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.
