Succulent ripe berry fruits with a hint of cream. A rich strawberry essence translates through to the palate, supported by a zesty and refreshing acid backbone that marries well with elegant Pinot Noir tannins. This wine has a pleasingly dry finish that reflects the climate and growing conditions of the Waihopai Valley.
Leefield Station Pinot Noir was machine harvested, fully de-stemmed and gently crushed prior to pressing. Blocks were kept separate and settled for 2 – 3 days, then racked clean to stainless tanks. This was followed by a slow, cool fermentation with select yeast strains chosen for their ability to capture and enhance aromatic intensity, before each batch underwent a short period of lees maturation. Individual tanks were then blended and returned to tank to allow the various components to integrate.
