About this listing
Free draining soils, plenty of sunshine, moderate temperatures and strong diurnal variation are the key to fruit intensity and on this 16ha block (Lots 1 and 2 DP 8891), the wines created from the Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Gruner Veltliner fruits are world class. Included with the vineyard (which is moving towards being fully organic) is the 740m2 luxury residence of exceptional quality, clean lines, native timbers, river stone fireplaces, and fossilised tiles enhanced by high-end appliances and innovative features such as the Swedish sauna room, a split level in-ground wine cellar, European cloakroom and indoor, solar heated lap pool. Architecturally designed, the owners' eye for perfection is evident inside and out. The kitchen and dining areas sport spectacular views over the vines to the northern ranges and the kitchen is an entertainer's delight. An imported pizza oven set in riverstone is positioned by the tasting bar in the kitchen, while the teppanyaki plate allows for perfectly cooked Asian fare. Other highlights include the master ensuite, with sauna and mezzanine yoga nook, spa bath and waterfall shower; while the visitors wing of lounge, three bedrooms and two bathrooms is spacious and opens to the sheltered BBQ area. The home nestles amongst native plantings which complement the riverstone exterior. One wind machine and existing irrigation ponds are included in the sale.
(Shares of the existing water right allocation to be determined.)
