Ostler Caroline’s Waitaki Pinot Noir 2016 $50 (5 stars)

Located on the cusp of South Canterbury and North Otago, Waitaki is an extreme place, like the last frontier for winegrowing, because it’s such a harsh environment. Jim Jerram however, is like the Gandalf of grape growing down there, and occasionally, when the weather gods shine on him, he’s able to eke out enough precious bunches of pinot noir to create a ‘Caroline’. This is his flagship wine, a stunning, super-concentrated example that sings fresh cherry, rosehip and black tea, gorgeous plum plushness and has an exotically-spiced, yet slippery, silky texture. It’s absolutely stunning.
