Hermit Ram Salty White Amphora 2021

MXN $990

Grape: Sauvignon Blanc and Muller Thurgau

Region: North Canterbury, New Zealand

You’ll taste/smell: Theo Coles has a whole big thing about finding saltiness in wines and getting that character involved, he calls it an ode to the New Zealand coastline. Indeed, this is a salty white wine! Scents of green herb, light floral notes, jasmine, some lemon curd, and tropical fruit. Juicy in the palate with tingly, saline acidity very prominent, and gentle savory nuttiness.

Good to have it with: burritos! a real tex-mex grilled chicken burrito, carne asada nachos, this is a fun wine that deserves fun food to match it.

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.
