2017 The Hermit Ram Skin-Fermented Müller-Thurgau
100% Müller-Thurgau from one of the oldest vineyards in North Canterbury planted some 35 years ago! Yields are tiny and so too is production. Just 8 cases are made available to New Zealand.
This wine is when skin-fermented wine is at its best; beautifully aromatic on the nose, deep and energetic in colour and rich stonefruit and tropical fruit on the palate. It's incredibly approachable too - perfumed and textural without any bitterness or overt phenolics.
