The Hermit Ram, a project from Theo Coles is an iconic winery in the New Zealand natural wine scene. This skin fermented Sauvignon Blanc is packed with attitude. Little to no additions are added during the winemaking process as Theo attempts to get the purest expression of the vineyard into the bottle. Grapes undergo spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts on the skins for 6 weeks, the juice is then pressed into old barrels where it undergoes natural malolactic fermentation after which it is immediately bottled.

This skin contact, orange wine has some grip, with aromas of orange blossom, and passionfruit. Salty, acidic, with a spicy punch! Grapefruit, orange citrus add a tang to tropical passion fruit and lychee - rich, oily balanced - great acids and saline minerality.
