The Hermit RamBuy from this producer
AboutTheo Coles made the first vintage of Pinot Noir in 2012, all naturally, no additions and matured in neutral oak hogsheads. As the wine progressed through maturation it got better and better, and revealed its true vineyard character to Theo. It had an exciting mix of savoury fruit aromatics and salivating salty acidity. It had to be bottled. Today, the range of wines are expanding, exciting things are happening. In general the fruit comes from tiny, close planted sites on limestone. They are grown by wine lovers, not big enough to be onerous, planted to give joy. The vines are naturally farmed and the wines made with the minimal amount of additions. Old techniques are employed. They are wines of depth, complexity, individuality and most importantly drink-ability.
