Winemaker

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.

History

Founded in 2002.

Practices & Techniques

The New Zealand industry recognised that a proactive approach towards sustainable production was required. In the mid-1990s, after considerable research, a holistic programme—later named Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ)—was launched. Sustainability is integral to the success of New Zealand wine. Members are committed to protecting the unique places that make our famous wines by reducing the use of chemicals, energy, water and packaging, and wherever possible reusing and recycling materials and waste. The programme sets benchmarks to provide measurable targets but, in our view, sustainability is a journey of continual improvement. Each year our targets become more ambitious, because every breakthrough we make is an opportunity to set the bar even higher.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

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.
