About This Wine

This wine is a tasty meddling of two styles; skin contact white and light red. It's like a Pinot Noir in character but with some very unique aromatics. This is a field blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Gewurztraminer from one of the oldest vineyards in Waipara/North Canterbury. 

This was destemmed and fermented on skins, using wild yeasts for 6 weeks. The wine was then pressed to Amphora and malolactic fermentation was allowed to occur uninhibited. Bottled without fining, filtration or sulphur. 

Hermit Ram is the bottled ethos of winemaker Theo Cole. Sometimes Rams get away from the heard and start to meander across New Zealand's incredible landscape. Cole found an etching depicting one of these 'hermit' rams that appeared 'defiant, a little sauvage, had an old world charm and was very New Zealand'. Which sums up Coles wines perfectly.
