Description

Make wine while the sun shines.


With a kiwifruit orchard on the boundary and located in close proximity to a range of other horticultural, viticultural and agricultural operations, this 26.59 hectare block is premium "General Rural" land. Silt loam soils are highly sought after and make for very fertile ground. This block has tile drainage under (approximately) 6.5 hectares of vineyard and drains that run along the northern and part of the eastern boundaries to culverts with attached flood gates that flow into the Waipaoa river. There is currently no consented water take, but the scale and location of this property lends itself to different options of potential on-site water storage. Above the soil, are Gisborne's warm summers, high sunshine hours and mild winters, which help to ensure great yielding and often early maturing crops, year after year.

6.5 hectares of this exceptionally well managed and maintained block are planted in Chardonnay grapes of varying ages, all currently under contract to two of New Zealand's leading wine producers. This property is recognized for its premium quality grapes which translate into premium quality wine. With both VSP and SILPOS style plant set-up, a portion of which can be KLIMA pre-pruned. Neighboring the grape block, are approximately 17 hectares of flats, which have been contoured to one corner for water run-off during wetter periods. These flats are currently leased for seasonal cropping and winter lamb fattening. A further 3 hectares of land (approx.) is made up of riverbank and riverside and is used for permanent grazing.

A bore and pump feeds two water troughs and an (approx.) 25,000 litre concrete water tank. A spray shed and two implement/hay sheds are located on the southern boundary, also included on the property is a basic cattle/sheep yards.

If you are looking for land to develop, or to extend your current operations, this is a property that must be viewed! If you haven't already, get in touch to arrange a good walk around the block and a friendly chat.
