Anchorage 2017 White and 2015 Syrah Releases

Anchorage Family Estate is the Nelson wine venture of Chris Drummond, whose family has had a history of horticulture and agriculture in the Nelson region since 1880. The Drummonds established their vineyard next to the mouth of the Motueka River in 2000, releasing their first wines from the 2003 vintage. Since then, the company has grown to owning over 40 ha of vineyards with contract fruit supplementing estate fruit. The Anchorage Family Estate has had Stefan Heinrich as winemaker since 2013, Stefan coming from a winemaking family in his homeland of Germany. He and the Drummonds continually improve the quality of their wines, creating interest with innovative varieties and now with the introduction of a ‘Reserve’ tier. Here, I review a selection of new releases from the 2017 vintage, these being whites, and a Reserve Syrah from 2015. www.anchoragewines.co.nz
