Nice review of our 2018 CrossHatch Patina, Santa Ynez Valley by Tony Marlow of Wines on the Range.
“In the glass, this 80/20 split of Viogner & Grenache Blanc from Sta Ynez has a THICK white gold center surrounded by a fading translucent halo….
A sniff is a lemon meringue pie and green apple EXPLOSION ———> A swirl and a revisit brings out a tropical kiwi note with an orange kick that leaves me salivating….
The palate has a coating mouthfeel that highlights more of the kiwi I got in the nose before a fun little limey peachy note comes out to play ———> The mid-palate shows a touch of minerality before ripe melon and honeydew bring home a loooooooooong honeysuckle finish….
When I discovered CrossHatch wines last year, I immediately fell in love with the reds so when I learned of this inaugural vintage of a Viognier & Grenache Blanc blend my expectations were quite high…. that said, I’m happy to report that this thing blew my anticipation out of the water!!!! It’s zesty, tropical, and just plain DELICIOUS! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with something that’ll have you bobbin’ your head like Cipes and The People – Free Me “
