It’s mid-March and Easter is next weekend. All the high street shop windows are fitted with mannequins wearing light clothes, the wine shops are stocking up on rosés, and the florists are selling daffodils – therefore it must be Spring! So I’m asking – where is the lady SPRING herself?!?
I spoke with Ana and other friends and all of us can’t wait for warmer weather, so we can put our coats back in the wardrobe and pull out nice summer clothes. I opened mine and summer dresses were calling to me together with my open-toe pumps – Take us out, we are so bored! I completely understand. I am bored too with all the heavy winter garb, craving delicate fabrics and bright colours. Don’t misunderstand me – I love my Burberry but I’d like it even more just thrown over a light t-shirt and ripped jeans rather than with a hat and big jumper.
Dear Spring, please come faster. I am so ready!
Well I decided to cheer myself up and despite the weather, I started tasting delicate Pinot Noirs, looking for a suitable partner to a spring lamb I’m planning to serve for our Easter feast. I’m hoping that by planning my Easter menu I’ll put myself in a Spring-like mood at last inside my home. All I need to do is sniff this Pinot Noir and turn my back on the window.
Out of a few candidates I picked Kuru Kuru Pinot Noir 2013 from Central Otago, New Zealand. This Gold medal winning, outstanding Pinot Noir is a wine making masterpiece. Beautifully complex and elegant with epic depth and fabulous silky finish, it shows a truly sophisticated blend of flavours: delicate red berries and plum combined with a touch of spice and milk chocolate, all supported by soft tannins and balanced with clean acidity. Perfect.
It’s so good that it may not survive until Easter…
