How long from AKL airport to city?

Have 2.5 hour layover and was wondering whether chance to go to city for a quick walk around before heading back to airport

I wouldn't risk it. It takes at least 30 minutes to get into the CBD, and can take longer depending on traffic. There's a mall near the airport and even a vinyard (I think) if you want to do some wine tasting.

Vinyard sounds great! Anyone have details?

I've always wondered if that vineyard had a specific jet fuel infused tasting wine :P
