Schubert in Wellington

Posed enticingly on a street plan of Wellington city centre, this wine cork bearing the name of my favourite composer (after Bach) is something I pocketed last night as a souvenir of a wonderful father-and-daughter evening out. We dined at a restaurant/ wine bar called Noble Rot, off Cuba Street, and it was one of the best meals I've had in Wellington, or anywhere – perfectly balanced, well-thought-out dishes, full of harmonising flavours, and a mighty impressive wine list, including, among pages of reds, a Schubert Selection Pinot Noir from Martinborough.
It had to be the Schubert – and it turned out to be a good choice: gloriously fragrant, light but full of flavour, a joy to drink. We raised many a glass, to each other, to present happiness, to the future... As I said, a wonderful evening. I look forward to the next one.

  4. Yes N, the Noble Rot is an absolute Welly treasure - my mother and daughter evening there this trip also involved one of the best meals I have ever eaten, anywhere - but that came as no surprise after previous meals at this small and unpretentious jewel of a restaurant (Welly doesn't really do pretentious!). When its predecessor, the delightful Duke Carvell, more of a cafe/restaurant, closed a few years ago it was a huge disappointment, but the Noble Rot has changed all that. In our wonderful, hectic, time chez Davidsons in Welly, it was so lovely for each of us to spend a glorious evening with our lovely daughter, with time to talk, linger over delicious food, and sip great wine, in a wonderful intimate ambience. Then, the following day it was total immersion in family life again, with our extraordinary, mischievous, maverick, rambunctious - and totally adorable - little kiwi grandsons!
