Aurum wines was established by Joan and Tony Lawrence in 2002 with the vision of producing regionally expressive Central Otago wines.
Central Otago, New Zealand, is an area that has established itself as a premium cool climate wine growing district, perfect for creating intense fruit flavours while maintaining strong acid structure.
Aurum wines’ two vineyards are located on the 45th parallel and are some of the world’s most southerly vineyards. Soils are silt loams sitting on 25 metres of gravels.
The name Aurum (Latin for gold) is a reflection of the fact that both vineyards have been established near old gold workings. 45th parallel vineyard is situated on terraces below rare ‘blowdown’ sluicings and the riesling and pinot gris are planted in the gravel washout from this 19th century operation.
