THE HERMIT RAM WHOLE BUNCH PINOT NOIR 2017 is available to buy in increments of 1

Wine Maker Theo Coles' own label Hermit Ram has attracted quite a following. This year's release of his whole bunch fermented Pinot Noir is brighter, more fruitful and more floral than before. Crunchy and juicy raspberry and cherry fruit on the palate, this wine is immediately rewarding! It's juicy and savoury on the palate but with ample texture and length owing to its whole bunch aspect. Pinot Noir with a twist.


The fruit this year is grown between two vineyards in North Canterbury, one on the Omihi slopes (clay and limestone) and one on the Waipara flats (glacial gravels with bands of limestone) - Biogro certified Organic. From there it was harvested by hand, fermented with approximately 65% whole bunches in stainless steel for a few weeks before being pressed and put to rest in barrel for the rest of the year. Bottled unfiltered, unfined and under Nomacorc with minimal sulphites only at bottling (25ppm).

93/100 Jamie Goode, May 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"2017 version of this wine rocks. So lovely and multidimensional. Really fresh, vivid and crunchy with a sappy edge to the bright cherry and plum fruit. There’s a lovely undergrowth edge and some greenness but it has integrated really well. So vivid and bright and drinkable but with seriousness too. It has elements of Gamay but also hints of northern Rhône."
