Restaurant Review: Noble Rot

4.5 David Burton for Stuff 2 July 2016

Noble Rot has been four years in the growth, ever since Hippopotamus sommelier Maciej Zimny and Josh Pointon (Café Polo) teamed up with Salty Pidgin chef Amy Gillies and FOH John-Paul Henderson on a wine course.

It's not just that Noble Rot has a magnificent 400-plus wine list, much of it privately curated, which spans all the best varieties and regions - or that there are 40-plus offerings by the glass.

Rather, it's that they have a new-fangled wine thief which enables them to raid small amounts from their most treasured bottles. Inserting the needles of their hand-held Coravin devices, the wine service staff can extract a little wine and then inject inert argon gas. The needle is withdrawn, the cork closes over, and the contents remain unoxidised.
