"Made from the 2004 vintage, this wine has been passionately created to reflect the distinctive Sauvignon Blanc style for which the region has become well regarded throughout the world."
A 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.
The result is the Secret Stone Sauvignon Blanc, a wine fresh, vibrant and elegant. Distinctively Marlborough.
Once received at the winery the fruit is de-stemmed, pressed and chilled to 10-12C before gentle pressing. The resulting juices are cold settled for 48-72 hours and racked in preparation for fermentation. Following fermentation in stainless steel the wine is chilled to 0C prior to racking and selection for the final blend. The primary objective being to protect the fresh vibrant characters of the expressive fruit.
