Auburn – Central Otago Riesling Passion

13-Mar-2011
True wine lovers appreciate the nobility of Riesling. Auburn is all about Riesling from Central Otago, the variety well-recognised as having the same potential to excite as Pinot Noir has done in the region. Three Riesling fanatics, Max Marriott – ex Christchurch wine personality with David Paterson and Andrew Burge, are dedicated to making exceptionally fine, individual, site-reflective, limited production wines. The vineyards are in Alexandra, Bannockburn, Bendigo and Lowburn. The first vintage was made at the now defunct Packspur winery, the 2010s at the Central Otago Wine Co., with Rockburn being the permanent base from 2011. This is a label to watch. If you like the wines, be quick, as the output is minuscule. www.auburnwines.com
