The whisper is that international model Miranda Kerr liked Loggerheads, the trophy Hunter Valley vineyard, so much she has now bought it for about $7.5 million.

The Pokolbin estate includes a 36-year-old vineyard, plus the Michael Suttor-refurbished home­stead amid Paul Bangay landscaping. There’s a summerhouse, pool, orchard, vegetable garden and shiraz and gamay vines.

It had been sold mid-June by Alan Rydge’s QT Hotels, who paid $6 million in 2016 when it was bought from the late Macquarie Bank co-founder Robin Crawford and his wife Judy. Crawford had purchased it from Trish Evans, the widow of winemaker Len Evans, for $5.15 million in 2008. It was owned by Tyrrell’s Wines before that.

Kerr (inset), now married to the Malibu-based billionaire Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel, rented the estate at Christmas 2015 when she spent time with her Gunnedah-based family, including restaurateur brother Matty, who at the time was running Nanna Kerr’s Kitchen, just down the road, with his then-fiance James Wright.

Sunflower Fun Pty Ltd, an Arnold Bloch Leibler law firm nominee ­company, is its mystery buyer.
