Leefield Station has a mission of showcasing the best of Marlborough in one amazing property. Delicious grapes, well-kept sheep, cattle, and pigs – all alongside flourishing native bush sheltering productive beehives and teeming flora and fauna. It is nature co-existing perfectly – helping each other, in an amazing eco-system of its own.

Because we believe this is what modern farming looks like.

Tasting Note


Quintessential zesty aromas of grapefruit flesh, gooseberry and an uplifting perfume of fresh Thai basil. The succulent palate is driven by a tight line of saline acidity, coupled with, concentrated lemongrass and blackcurrant fruit, lending this wine to excellent persistent flavour with a refreshingly dry finish.


Try the Leefield Station Sauvignon Blanc 2022 alongside the fresh vivid flavours of Kingfish crudo, jalapeños and lime – perfect for your next dinner party.


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



Leefield Station, Waihopai Valley, Marlborough.


100% Sauvignon Blanc.


The preservation of aromatic and fruit flavours from the vineyard through to the winery is of utmost importance in our Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit is field destemmed before being gently pressed into stainless steel tanks. The juice is fermented at cool temperatures with selected yeast strains aimed at developing vibrant and fresh varietal characters.

Record rainfall in July, August and a warm start to September, permitted an energetic start to the growing season. This coincided with double the usual number of frosts which were replaced by warmer temperatures and humid northerly airflows in October. Early season varieties flowered rapidly while later season varietals were slightly challenged by a cool, wet start to December. Increasing temperatures and a warm, dry January ultimately ensured an abundance of fruit.

Despite heavy February rains, good vineyard practice and increased sunshine hours through the tail end of February meant the vast majority of the resulting fruit was clean and ripe. Harvesting began in early March due to early season disease pressure with positive fruit flavours indicating physiological ripeness. The team are excited about the structural diversity and bright complex flavours of the 2022 wines.
