Lime Rock Vineyard opportunity

Established Vineyard, Award winning well-respected wines, Outstanding 360 degree views.

Lime Rock Vineyard is situated only 43km South of Hastings, 6km from Waipawa, and sits on 19.4ha. Grape vines are planted on 8.5ha. The balance of the land is in vineyard headlands and the remaining area is currently grazed by livestock. More vines could be planted or this could be a premium building platform. The vineyard is on north facing, soft limestone hills at an altitude of 230-270m. This free draining and frost-free site with warm days and cool nights is ideally suited for ultra-premium Pinot Noir.

Lime Rock Wines has a list of accolades with the 2009 Pinot Noir being included in Master of Wine Jancis Robinsons Top 100 Red Wines of the World for 2012 and Gold medals for their Pinot Noir in Australia and Gruner Veltliner and Pinot Gris in New Zealand.

The vineyard has substantial water resource consent, which is accessed from a bore adjacent to the Mangaonuku river.

Wine tasting at the small intimate cellar door allows visitors to hear the ecological and winemaking story in a relaxed atmosphere. Bottling of the wine is facilitated by Wineworks Hawkes Bay in Hastings.

The property offers a discerning buyer the opportunity to not only reap the benefits of purchasing an established and recognised brand but also the potential tourism dream and lifestyle close to premium trout fishing streams, cycle tracks, walking and tramping tracks, including the popular Sunrise Hut in the Ruahine Ranges. To the East, approximately 30 minutes drive are a range of beaches with recreational options.

A rare opportunity to purchase this sustainably certified and outstanding property in Central Hawkes Bay that offers exceptional potential for further expansion of the vineyard and wines, combined with a unique tourism experience.
