Reviews and Ratings

Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pale straw in colour with aromas of apricot, lime, passion fruit and pear. It is light bodied with mouthwatering acidity and has flavours of lime and peach that leads into a long cirtus finish. This will pair well with soft cheeses, asparagus or seafood. Tasted on September 16, 2018.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A fresh, vivacious Sauvignon Blanc by The Hatch. This Screaming Frenzy certainly lives up to its name with spirited notes of flinty passionfruit, pink grapefruit, and perfumed white peonies. Typical green notes of asparagus or grassy cat’s pee aren’t found here - instead there’s a keen, distinct element of fresh chives and basil leaves peeking out. Flavours impart luscious Granny Smith apples, flinty passionfruit and creamy guava notes at the back with a dynamic pomelo citrus medium finish. Acidity is refined and perfectly proportioned with a heavier body and a decadent oily mouthfeel is offered leaving it fuller and adding more weight. This will accompany a variety of foods or on its own. Try a pairing with a marinated seafood salad or herbed chicken. This would also be a fine match for veggie burgers. 90 points - tasted September 2018 @HatchWines
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a fantastic sipper for the patio or a large plate of cold seafood. Mandarin orange, citrus blossom, lemon, gooseberry, Asian pear. 89 Points.
