The rich fertile soils surrounding the Motueka township, coupled with balmy sea breezes and some of New Zealand's consistently highest sunshine readings are the ideal climate in which to craft the aromatic wines Anchor Bay produces.
Anchor Bay Wines are produced at the Northern end of the South Island, known as the Nelson Tasman region, which boasts the most sunshine hours in New Zealand.
The soils in the Nelson Tasman region are renowned for producing rich, full bodied wines, which can be attributed to the bountiful surrounding environment.
The region also encapsulates sheltered, sandy coastlines leading to rugged mountains, making it an idyllic spot to grow grapes, make wine and enjoy the sights.
Plenty of gooseberry with some cassis and passionfruit impressive on the nose. Gooseberry, cassis and the subtle flavours of pineapple and passionfruit leave the palate with a fresh, nicely balanced feel.
Chilled alone on a sunny day or with a delicious seafood accompaniment.
Olfactory enticement lead by flavours of Apricot, pear and quince with hints of floral aromas of orange blossom. The hint of citrus and subtle stone fruit flavours keeps sweetness to a minimum.
Enjoy with friends and family or with light meats such as veal and pork.
Style: Lightly Oaked
Ruby red colours enhance this elegant yet subtle variety, arousing the senses through cherry and plum flavours. Hints of dark chocolate and Vanillin pair with savoury aromas invoking epicurean nights by the fireplace.
Divine with duck or other fowl. An inviting drop you won’t soon forget.
