This block was originally the 'Oat paddock' of Kawarau Station. The Dicey Family purchased it in 1990; they developed the current vineyard.
Long Gully consists of Lochar soils. These are formed in older fans, and have very weakly developed, thin and wavy clay pans which are deep enough to cause no impediment to roots or drainage. These are well-drained, high pH soils ideally suited to viticulture. They generally have a 30cm depth of top soil over fine to moderately coarse gravels.
Long Gully is 11.5 hectares in size with four varieties planted: Pinot Noir (7.62 Ha), Chenin Blanc (0.78 Ha), Riesling (1.64 Ha) and Pinot Gris (1.34 Ha). The Pinot Noir is made up of five different clones: 5, 6, 10/5, 667 and 777, while the Pinot Gris is 2.15 and the Riesling is an equal mix of GM110 and GM239.
