Limestone, cool climate & a pioneering spirit; 3 ingredients for a cult Pinot

Ever wondered what it feels like to be working under the sun all day and getting your hands dirty, all in the hope of making the best wine possible? As part of our initiatives to make artisanal wineries more accessible to wine lovers, Wines Online is happy to announce the launch of our own YouTube channel. We invite wine personalities to talk to us about what drives them, what they are best at, and why we should drink their wines in our brand new segment of “Tasting with wine personalities”.

Waitaki Valley is New Zealand's newest, ultra premium and possibly last vino significant region to be developed. It is also a notoriously hard region to grow grapes with the constant threat of frost. Jim Jerram, co-founder of Ostler Vineyards talks about his project in this special place and guides us through a taste of the winery's flagship Ostler Caroline's Pinot Noir. This wine is one of NZ's top 10 Pinot Noirs. Described as Chambolle-Musigny like by Matt Kramer of Wine Spectator, it has won some of the world's most important awards.
