Wines from Central Otago
Central Otago sits at the very bottom of the South Island. It is New Zealand's most southerly wine region. Originally sought after for its gold, Central Otago has once again found a treasure - wine. The most southerly wine region in the world produces Pinot Noir that is much loved far beyond New Zealand.
Recent rapid expansion means grapes now dominate cherries and apricot orchards. The extreme climate has rewarded careful site selection with wines of great intensity and finesse, and there is increasing focus on subregional expression.

A superb Pinot Noir with aromas of black plum and dark cherry. Rich on the palate
with blackcurrant, plum, forest floor notes and subtle spice. Winemaker Rudi Bauer is part of the reason Central Otago has gained international acclaim. The winemaking was very much in keeping with the traditional practices of the Old World.

A New Zealand benchmark from Lake Wanaka in Central Otago. The farm voice of a distinct parcel of land: Rippon. The north-facing escarpment forms the meeting point of terminal moraines and coarse gravels, all based in schist, on which some of the region's earliest vines were planted.
