We are developing substantial vineyards, but most of the 2300ha property will continue to run as a livestock farm.
So far, 400ha of the property has been converted into vineyards, with 250ha more planned over the next few years. Leefield is primarily planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, while we are looking at specific spots where we can trial some other varieties.
Large parts of Leefield comprise of a glacial valley filled with mineral-rich soil and beautiful rolling foothills. The area has consistently high diurnal differences, coupled with a complex diversity of soil types and mesoclimates.
We harvested the first light crop of Leefield grapes in 2015, and it gave every indication of meeting our high expectations of this exceptional vineyard site.
