Secret Stone, one of New Zealand’s leading wineries, today celebrated the launch of the latest addition to their award-winning portfolio, the 2008 Sauvignon Blanc.
A hero varietal among Australian consumers, the 2008 Sauvignon Blanc follows hot on the footsteps of its 2007 predecessor, which was recently named the number one selling New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc over $181.
Sourced from the heart of New Zealand’s premier wine region, Marlborough, the 2008 vintage was carefully developed by Secret Stone winemakers and offers a clean, fresh and fruit flavoured taste which lingers gracefully on the palate.
According to Peter Munro, Secret Stone Senior winemaker, “Crafted with minimal intervention to retain unique varietal fruit characteristics, Secret Stone’s 2008 Sauvignon Blanc has been specially blended to produce an intense, stylish and superb drinking wine – it’s no wonder New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc has become the benchmark against which all others are judged.”
New Zealand’s Marlborough region has a highly regarded international reputation and is renowned for its distinctly flavoured wines that are celebrated throughout the region.
Secret Stone takes its name from the rare and precious greenstone found hidden beneath the riverbeds throughout New Zealand’s South Island. The greenstone is crafted into beautiful carvings that are passed down from one generation to the next. In addition to the Sauvignon Blanc, Secret Stone also boasts a popular range of varietals including Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir.
