November wines

My least favourite month of the year. Just dark, wet and windy and no real reasons for celebrations, unless you’re a true food and wine lover. Then every weekend is a chance to try and experiment with new flavours, food and spices. The Rabl Pinot Noir from Austria was probably the surprise of the month. Along with grilled halibut, smoked pancetta, red wine juice and puree of Jerusalem artichokes it was match made in heaven.
