'LIVING WITH THE LAND'
van Asch wines have an emotional and historical attachment to Central Otago. The characteristics of each wine reinforce the connection with the region and the flavours that have always been here.
Henry van Asch is the owner of van Asch wines while also being the co-founder of AJ Hackett Bungy and in 1993 diversified into the wine industry.
It is with pride and enjoyment that van Asch wines have crafted the wines as a reflection of the land.
The winemaking aim is best summed up by “fine wine begins with the vine”. The van Asch wines approach is through sustainable viticulture where a balance’ in the vineyard is strived for. This ultimately provides grapes that are a reflection of each particular site or as the French say ‘terroir’.
PINOT NOIR 2010
The Freefall 2010 Pinot Noir represents exceptional value for a Central Otago Pinot Noir.
Aromas of black cherry and spicy warm pastry notes are complemented by a generous front palate full of spicy black fruits.
The mid palate displays rich savoury complexities and the wine finishes with excellent length and sweet dark chocolate ripe tannins.

PINOT GRIS 2010
Dry in style the van Ash Pinot Gris is generous in fruit weight and has a luscious texture filling the mouth with flavours of stone fruit and juicy pears. Perfect for all year round including sitting on the beach over summer or quenching your thirst after a day on the lake.
The nose exudes ripe juicy aromas or evocative elderflower and quince.
