Last week we had the absolute delight of dining at new Restaurant Rest. in Oslo. It has already received rave reviews from the newspapers, so we were very exited to try for ourselves. And it didn't disappoint. A fantastic 19 course meal all with a focus on Norwegian produce and everything salvaged from what is in essence leftovers. Amazing!
Fortunately for us I knew the head sommelier there and she served up some of the fine wines they have on their menu. Understandably, they haven’t got the biggest cellar yet, that comes later, but what they have is of the highest quality. And one of my favourites from the evening is this weeks wine.
I am a big fan of German wines, but almost exclusively their Riesling wines. But this time she had a fine Pinot Noir, or Spätburgunder as the grape is known in Germany, for us to taste. K. Wechsler Spätburgunder Trocken 2014 is fine and very drinkable wine that is also quite affordable. Perfect for both fine dining and the comfort of home. Made by the very talented Katharina Wechsler, another of the very exiting female wine makers making a splash in todays wine market.

Lovely and nice Spätburgunder with all the notes you would expect from a Pinot. Red berries and strawberries. Very, very drinkable. Will be very nice with a vegetable dish like we got at the restaurant or something else light. But also fine to drink by it self.
