Anchorage Family Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2013
GOLD Medal - San Francisco International Wine Competition 2014
The Drummond family's wine operation continues to grow and has now released a bevy of new 2013 vintage wines onto the domestic and overseas markets. Fruit is sourced from the company's own 45 ha in the Motueka district with a supply from contract growers in the Moutere region, and is bottled under the 'Anchorage' brand, as well as supporting 'Awaroa', 'Torrent Bay' and 'Southern Lighthouse' labels. New winemaker Stefan Heinrich, who hails from Heilbronn in Germany took over the reins in time for the 2013 vintage. The aromatic wines in particular are a real success with excellent fruit expression and clarity.
