Leung Estate

Wellington dentist and entrepreneur Edward Leung owns a small 3-hectare vineyard in Martinborough producing an average of just 600-700 cases a year of Pinot Noir. Low cropping, close planting and minimal interference by winemaker Wendy PottsĀ produces a delicious Pinot with lovely medium weight and fine texture.
