the hatch 2017 Dynasty Red
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 Inspirational motto:
“History is filled with the sound of silken slippers going downstairs and wooden shoes coming up' - Voltaire
This Dynasty starts in selected blocks from our best vineyards deep in the soul of Osoyoos; Monarch Vineyard and the impregnable Similkameen Valley. For it, we combined Cab Sauv, Malbec and touches of Syrah along with Merlot this vintage. Raised in all new French oak for 16 months, the goal was to make a wine of opulence, texture and most of all, big flavour. Some might describe this wine as a ‘velvet slipper’ and I shan’t disagree. Not that I ever did. The Cab Sauv contributed structure, and boysenberry while the Malbec rounded it all out with some black cherry charm, luscious pluminess, with the Merlot and Syrah pop out notes of lilac and lavender. Yes, this wine does have it going on. Drink now, or let your Dynasty develop for an eon of your own.
Blah Blah Blah. What’ are the GD grapes
We're looking at 51% Cab Sauv, 21% Malbec, 14% Syrah and 14% Syrah.
