Leefield Station

Leefield Station is a fully operational vineyard farm located in the Waihopai Valley of Marlborough. It is one of the oldest Stations in Marlborough, dating back to the 1840's when it was settled by Constantine Dillon. In 2013 Brent Marris of Marisco Vineyards purchased the 2,200 ha property with sights set for not only it's pastoral farming potential but also to convert a large portion of the land to vineyard. Something Brent does superbly well!

2017 marked quite an occasion, the year that the first Leefield Station vintage from the Leefield Station vines hit the market.

"I have a vision of beautiful vineyards on the flat and rolling country at Leefield running harmoniously alongside our farming operation and retaining that station-like feel with the historic buildings and trees." Brent Marris

Leefield Station Sauvignon Blanc

A deliciously ripe, perfumed nose of lime zest, passionfruit and musky pink grapefruit that serves as an entrée to a palate saturated with flavours of exotic citrus, woody herbs and warm river stone; all delivered within a taut, uber fresh acid framework that serves to drive the wine to a sustained, juicy finish. 

A delicious match with most seafood, salads and sheep & goats cheeses; try the Leefield Station Sauvignon Blanc alongside grilled Mahi Mahi with a lemon, herb crust.

Crafted to be enjoyed at the peak of its vibrancy and freshness, we recommend drinking this wine within 2 – 3 years of vintage date.
