Judges' Comments

Mark Robertson

Terrific wine. It was powerful and somewhat minty but had lifted aromas. Slightly cooked with some good, tarry, complex aged characters. There was a query whether this wine had too much stalkiness but no, it worked here. It built and improved the wine immensely. A successful wine with good extract finally.

“On the sweeter end of medium/sweet but with lovely fine acidity which stops any suggestion of cloying. Mineral, floral and stone fruit flavours offer appeal. Pretty wine with impressive purity.”


Latest van Asch Wine Release - Pinot Gris 2009

 

The van Asch Pinot Gris 2009 has just been released.

 

We are excited to have this exceptional wine from Bendigo fruit available for sale.


"Evocative of elderflower and quince, the nose of this wine exudes ripe juicy aromas. Dry in style yet generous in fruit weight and luscious texture, the mouth filling flavours of stone fruit and juicy pears make this wine a taste sensation. ."
