The Hermit Ram Pinot Noir Zealandia 2020

MXN $1150

Grape: 100% Pinot Noir

Appellation: North Canterbury, New Zealand

Region: North Canterbury, New Zealand

You’ll taste/smell: stunning Pinot. Lively, fresh and bit spicy; flower and herbal notes that integrates both nose and palate with cherries and wild berries in a way that every sip is raw yet serious and rich. 2020 Zealandia Pinot is billowing aromatics, tight palate with a finish like sloes and all the (good) sour things and maybe some rocks…– to quote Theo Coles

Good to have it with: if we go with Mexican food a black mole or carnitas can be an interesting pairing; gourmet hot-dogs or even truffle fries

The Winery: The Hermit Ram

In 2012 Theo Coles discovered the Limestone Hills vineyard in Canterbury in the north of New Zealand’s South Island.  Owned by Gareth Renowdon, Theo agreed to make some wine with him from his 1000 or so Pinot Noir vines.  Limestone Hills vineyard is naturally farmed, and the first vintage (2012) was that way too — no additions and matured in old oak.

Since then Theo has expanded the range to include the skin fermented Sauvignon Blanc and Müller-Thurgau, a field blend rosé and another Pinot Noir.  The fruit comes from tiny vineyards throughout the Canterbury region, all naturally farmed without chemicals and Theo is keen to stress that every wine has its own story to tell.  We agree and would add that this is some of the most exciting wine to come out of New Zealand for a long time; a turning point for authentic, artisan winemakers in a country so often associated with mass-produced wine.  These are wines with personality, depth, complexity and most importantly, drinkability.
