About the Wine
This wonderful white wine created by Leefield Station is made in Marlborough. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark meaning you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, supplied by Marisco Vineyards Ltd. Leefield Station Sauvignon Blanc is a flavourful wine, made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added-sulphites. Herbaceous and zesty, perfect with white fish, asparagus, goats' cheese or dishes with green herbs.
Sauvignon has boomed in recent years. Its crisp acidity makes it a popular choice as an aperitif or with food. It's an aromatic variety, enjoyed when young, and mostly un-oaked. Produced in a variety of methods in the Old and New World resulting in a light and minerally style to more tropical flavours.

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
