the hatch 2017 Dynasty White
With the Dynasty White, extravagant opulence was the goal and combining Chardonnay, Semillon and a dash of Muscat proved to be the winning combination we were seeking. This wine defied vineyards, and it goes beyond the grapes themselves. After fermenting the Chard and Sem in older oak, we allowed this wine to further develop for 9 months in stainless steel barrels on their lees to create a wine of wine up front texture while retaining a sense freshness. The Muscat was an accouterments at the end of the process, and who doesn’t love Muscat.
‘The goal of Dynasty White is extravagant opulence, and the vectors are chardonnay mixed with sémillon and viognier. The attack is rich with floral perfume leading to apple pie, baked pears, vanilla and a touch of sweet lemon curd countered by a fresh finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. There is an aura of the exotic suggesting this would be best suited to richer menu items and or spicy items like a Thai or Indian curry. Ready to drink. 88 points‘– Anthony Gismondi, Gismondi on Wine. Tasted November 8th 2018
Inspired by Paul’s work, ‘Hobo Dynasty’, our Dynasties are wines made for the pure, hedonistic sake of the wines themselves and will always be the pinnacle of the hatch wine hierarchy.
