This wine is an extension of the Nattura Sauvignon Blanc process.
About The Wine
The skin contact white wines from The Hermit Ram are perhaps what this off-beat, cult producer is best known for.
This is Sauvignon Blanc that spent a month on skins before being pressed, a month long skin maceration is really pushing the limits with this variety.
Looking for a classic Kiwi Sauv Blanc, you better run the other way.
This skinsy, savage Sauv Blanc has some bite.
About The Hermit Ram
Theo Coles is the enigmatic wildman behind The Hermit Ram creations.
This is what happens when traditional winemaking techniques cross with a punk rock attitude.
His wines are raw and loaded with attitude. Little to no additions are utilised during the winemaking process as Theo attempts to get the purest expression of the vineyard into the bottle.
The Hermit Ram is one of the poster boys of the NZ natural wine scene.
