2016 Ostler "Caroline's" Pinot Noir Waitaki Valley North Otago (Elsewhere $50)

SKU #1481542 97 points Sam Kim

Outer quote mark An outstanding wine of exceptional balance and harmony; the richly expressed bouquet shows Black Doris plum, spiced cherry, hazelnut, olive, cake spice and smoked meat characters, followed by an impressively concentrated palate that’s mouthfilling and delicious. It’s stacked with ripe fruit flavours and velvety texture, together with savoury nuances, making it gratifying and mesmerising. At its best: now to 2030. Inner quote mark (3/2020)

96 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Dense, ripe and vibrant pinot noir with dark berry, cherry, liquorice, anise, plum and classy oak flavours. An impressive wine with power and potential, although it is deliciously drinkable now. It has an impeccable balance and a tantalisingly lengthy finish Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The medium to full-bodied 2016 Caroline's Pinot Noir features ripe notes of cola, plum and black cherry but also fresh floral elements of rose petals and hints of thyme. The tannins are supple up front, then turn dustier on the finish, where subtle spice shadings appear and linger. This is as convincing an argument I've tasted for this little-known portion of Otago. (JC) 92+ Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lush and rich, with sink-your-teeth-into-them flavors of ripe black cherry and blackberry, accents of vanilla and sage, and a whiff of caramel. The tannins are plush and supple, the finish complex. (MW) Inner quote mark (10/2018)
