2019 The Hermit Ram "Skin Fermented" Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand
The skin contact white wines from The Hermit Ram are perhaps what this off-beat, cult producer is best known for. This is Sauvignon Blanc that spent six weeks on skins before being pressed, that amount of skin maceration is really pushing the limits with this variety. Looking for a classic Kiwi Sauv Blanc, you better run the other way. This skinsy, savage Sauv Blanc has some bite.
