Field Blend Skin Ferment 2020
About this wine, Theo (the Hermit Ram) says, "the act of fermenting whichever varieties are planted in your vineyard together is intriguing and the results can be delicious and a really unique picture of a particular vineyard site and region." This wine is like a delicate Pinot Noir with insane aromatics and really punchy finish. Bonus-- It comes from one of North Canterbury’s earliest planted vineyards!
We love it with… 🧀🍝 :salami:
Type: Red, Coferment
Grape: Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewurztraminer
Region: North Canterbury, New Zealand
Vinification: The fruit was picked on the proportions it grows in the vineyard (tiny, farmed naturally with no chemicals). It was destemmed and naturally fermented on skins for 6 weeks. Pressed off in to Amphora and allowed to go through a natural malolactic ferment. This wine was bottled with no fining, filtration or sulfur.
