The old world has inspired many of the winemaking decisions at the Hermit Ram.
About The Wine
This is a wild a spicy Pinot Noir with plenty of x-factor.
Fermented as 75% whole bunches, this wine throws spice at you. It's a rugged, unshaven style of Pinot Noir, a world away from the polished and manicured styles that NZ has become famous for.
There's something which drags you back to the glass each time you pull away.
A wine of raw magnetism and attitude. There's a reason The Hermit Ram has such a cult following.
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.
