DescriptionThe Secret Reserve range of wines is created in pursuit of balance. For over a century an ancient mirror hanging in the Santa Rita Estate has kept the secrets of the dances held, toasts made and the moments shared. Like each and every mirror, each glass of Santa Rita Secret Reserve wine will be filled with stories that begin as soon as you share the bottle. Each wine is created by blending grape varieties and diverse expressions for the most balanced, delicious sip. The freshness and elegance of the Casablanca Valley are evident in this great Secret Reserve Sauvignon Blanc from Santa Rita.
VinificationCasablanca Valley has gentle sea breezes and cold morning fog, ideal for Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The harvest began in early March for fresh, herbal notes & ended in April for tropical flavors. Fermentation occurred at low temperatures with select yeasts.
NoseTremendously intense nose with predominant citrus notes recalling lime, lemon peel, grapefruit, and citrus blossoms. Rounded out by aromas of white peach, tropical fruits and complementing herbal notes.
