With a combination of a value packed price, and quality that is more akin to a wine at a much higher price point, this has become a Vino Fino favourite. It is darkly coloured and packs plenty of flavour – dark fruits, smokey, savoury hints and a great depth of flavour.
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 Leefield Station Pinot Noir delivers aromas of wild blackberries and plum with a hint of tobacco and smoky oak spice. The palate is rich and mouth filling with an ensuing acidity that marries well with soft ripe tannins and a dark mocha finish."
Judges Comments, Marlborough Wine Show (2019 Vintage)
"Champion Wine of the Show went to Leefield Station Pinot Noir 2019, a wine that Chief Judge Ben Glover described as a wine that “dances on the palate.”
It was an undisputed winner Mr Glover said. “It was the most preferred wine from the first round of Pinot Noir judging through to trophy and champion wine of the show. It is an exceptional wine full of bright fruits, really vibrant palate, and lovely length."
4 ½ Stars & Top 10 Cuisine Pinot Noir Tasting, April 2022 (2019 Vintage)
"A rich, fruit-forward pinot noir with a beautiful dash of savoury herbs on the nose. The textural palate manages to be both fresh and plush with bright redcurrant flavours, rounded tannins and a lush toastiness. A very complete wine with a long satisfying finish."
