Tasting Note


Opening with complex aromas of black cherries and wild mushrooms laced with a trace of gunpowder. The palate is opulent and layered, supported by chalky tannins and juicy acidity, intertwined with generous fruit sweetness and nuances of spicy French oak to elongate the finish.


We recommend pairing the Leefield Station Pinot Noir 2021 with slow roasted lamb or, for something different, freshly caught New Zealand Salmon.


Crafted to be enjoyed within 3 – 5 years of vintage date.



Leefield Station, Waihopai Valley, Marlborough.


100% Pinot Noir.


Lovingly hand-picked fruit was predominately de-stemmed without crushing into small open- top fermentation tanks. Some whole clusters were included in select batches to add complexity and length to the final assemblage. The grapes were cold-soaked for around 5–7 days before a rapid, warm fermentation. The ferments were hand-plunged 3 or 4 times each day to keep the skins in intimate contact with the fermenting juice. They were then left to macerate for an additional week post-ferment to ensure optimum flavour development and integrated tannin extraction. The young wines were then drained and pressed before being aged in French oak puncheons for 9 months during which time they underwent a full malolactic fermentation.

The 2021 growing season had an ideal start – early bud burst after a record warm, dry winter (the second warmest since 1932), and an unusually uneventful frost period. Wet weather in the critical months of November and December challenged flowering and fruit set but the southerly position of the Waihopai Valley, with its typically later flowering, protected most of our vineyards from the worst impacts.

Harvest started early due to optimal grape ripening from dry summer months and record sunshine hours. Fruit was harvested in pristine condition with a calm, steady flow undeterred by significant rain mid-harvest.

Despite smaller yield we captured fruit flavours at their best aided by the absence of vineyard disease, an overall moderately warm, dry season, and proactive harvest plans. The team are very excited by the quality of harvest 2021.

Awards & Accolades

  • Marlborough Wine Show 2022
  • Mundus Vini Spring Tasting 2023
  • WineOrbit: Sam Kim 2022

"Offering gorgeous fruit ripeness with savoury undertones, the wine has plump body within an elegant frame, showing sweet cherry, clove, game, olive and roasted nut aromas, leading to a silky-smooth palate that’s juicy and plush. Fine tannins provide structure and length, finishing polished and delectable. At its best: now to 2027."

  • Cameron Douglas MS 2022

"Aromas of cherry and plum then a fine stony soil quality and some baking spice toasty barrel qualities. An abundance of fine tannins and acidity layer in texture and core fruit flavours add a plushness to the mouthfeel. Cherry and mushroom, a whisper of black currant and vanilla barrel spice. Balanced and well made with best drinking from late 2023 through 2029."
