the hatch 2014 'hatchchild'
WINNER OF A DOUBLE-GOLD AT THE 2018 FINGER LAKES INTERNATIONAL WINE COMPETITION 'A nice improvement this year thanks to a fruit source change from the Oliver Inkameep Vineyard to what the Hatch boys describe as “the sandy streets of East Osoyoos”, better known as Hans Estate Vineyard. Plenty of heat units should ensure physiological or phenolic ripeness but there is no mistaking the varietal, leafy, cassis fruit aromas and flavours. The tannins are well managed and seem to be appropriate for the warm, peppery finish. Best now with cheese or grilled meats, or wait three-to-five years for the oak to settle in and the wine to find its feet. 88 points' - Anthony Gismondi, Gismondi on Wine. Tasted January 23rd 2018 ]>
