Field Blend Skin-Fermented 2018
A Wine That
is all about fun. Are you a lover of Disco? Then this wine is for you. With flavours coming at you from left, right and centre, this is like raspberries inside a lemon meringue. Completely spellbinding, this is like when synth-pop first hit the charts and nobody could get enough. You won't regret it.

Where and How?
This is a blend of grape varieties you'd never imagine possible together, but somehow this creates something delicious in its otherworldliness, painting an utterly unique picture of the vineyard, and indeed, New Zealand itself. The grapes were destemmed and the juice fermented naturally with the skins for six weeks. Once pressed, the wine aged in amphorae. Bottled unfined, unfiltered and without sulphites.
The Winemaker: The Hermit Ram
The more winemakers we meet, the more we understand that the greatest winemakers are also the most humble. That’s definitely the case when it comes to Theo Coles of the Hermit Ram. When we chat with him, it’s clear his enthusiasm for his craft grows on a daily basis, but so does his way of thinking - with experience, he becomes more open-minded, not less.
It’s arguably this mindset that has brought him to where he is today; creating some of the most thrilling and exciting wines that New Zealand has to offer.
But why - and how - are they so great? You might ask. It’s due to their rawness and transparency that these wines are able to communicate their place. In a sea of New Zealand wines that often taste the same, these stand completely apart. They’re unique, and they’re not afraid to be unique.
