Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
From Matua Valley, the 2009 vintage was 'passionately created'. Full-bodied, it shows good intensity, with crisp, vibrant passionfruit and lime flavours, finely balanced and dry.

Matua's Secret Stone has delivered reliably again in 2008; this has some fennel and betel leaf aromas, gentle methoxy here too. The palate is crisp with some sweaty flavour, lime juice citrus and bright crisp acidity. Finishes really fresh.

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
From Foster's, which owns Matua Valley, the 2006 vintage is 'leanet and more citrusy' than the company's Shingle Peak Sauvignon Blanc, says winemaket Peter Munro. It's a fresh, citrusy (yes) and limey wine, with a hint of passionfruit and a finely balanced, smooth, dry finish (3 grams/litre of residual sugar).

Peter Forrestal (2005 Vintage) says
Secret Stone Sauvignon Blanc is a merchant's wine in that it is produced and distributed by Southcorp (now Fosters). The current vintage is the second - and I was also a big fan of the 2004. It is contract-made from growers' fruit but with input from the Southcorp wine-makers, who insist on minimal intervention during the winemaking process. The 2005 Secret Stone is a very good example of Marlborough sauvignon: fresh, pristine and vibrant brimming with ripe tropical fruit and passionfruit flavours, good weight and crisp, refreshing acidity on a long, lingering finish. Considering it's quality, it's very well-priced: in fact, a bargain. Great summer drinking.
