About the Wine
This terrific red wine produced by Leefield Station is crafted in Marlborough. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark meaning you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, distributed in the UK by Marisco Vineyards Ltd. Leefield Station Pinot Noir is a delighful wine, made from Pinot Noir grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added-sulphites.
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
In 2013 the acquisition of the 2,300 hectare Leefield Station property located in the south of the Waihopai Valley, helped to grow the family vineyards and continue Winemaker Brent’s philosophy of controlling his own destiny. This historic farming station, known for its production of quality beef and lamb,is now home to over 650 hectares of vineyard.The vineyards embody a boutique, small-block functionality on a large scale, taking the fresh, vibrant flavours of Marlborough wine to the world.
The islands here stretch nearly 1,000 miles north to south, and the climate varies from subtropical in Auckland, to positively perishing in the south. 2018 will be remembered by many wineries in here as a year for the record books.Explore New Zealand
