Leefield Station Pinot Gris, Marlborough
Leefield Station is located in the Waihopai Valley of Marlborough, and is one of the oldest farming stations in Marlborough, dating back to the 1840?s. In 2013 Brent Marris of Marisco Vineyards purchased the 2,300 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. Fragrant aromas of yellow apples and grapefruit commingle with green tropical fruits and a lifted spiciness reminiscent of powered ginger, all delivered on a weighty yet tautly structured palate possessing a brightness and freshness that reflects the genuine cool-climate growing conditions.

Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are one in the same grape variety, but quite different in style. Pinot Grigio has gained an immense following in the UK, and most hails from north-east Italy, Veneto. It's lighter in style and best drunk young. Pinot Gris tends to have more body and is more vicious in texture.
