When you sit in traffic for double your normal commute, you look forward to Wine Wednesday. Tonight was about leftovers (schnitzel) so we were not looking to pair anything specific. Strangely we did not have any riesling in the wine fridge, so I went down to the cellar to find a Pinot Noir and pulled out Flat Rock’s Gravity 2009.
At first impression, from the nose there is a slight barnyard earthiness with cherries in the background. The colour is brick red with good clarity. The flavours are full of ripe red fruits, a hint of tannins and good balancing acidity. The finish is medium with the cherries and a hint of spice at the end. And it goes well with Cadbury Mini Eggs 😉
