I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

The Reserve Wine Bar

Let the chef feed you a delicious five course meal with matching wines for $115 per head in the Reserve Wine Bar. Our evening began with a glass of sparkling wine which was followed by five well paced share courses complemented with a variety of wines.

Cheese, pickles, entree, Brie
Start with a baked brie

The creamy baked Brie with pickled vegetables and sourdough was matched with a Margaret River Chardonnay that helped to cut through its richness.The simply named but complex tasting seafood stew was paired with a citrussy Tasmanian Riesling. This was a tasty balanced dish, the fish and calamari perfectly cooked.

Pinot Noir from the Yarra Valley was served with the duck, lentils and lardons and we had a glass of Argentinian Malbec with the delectable 400g T-bone.

Duck, lentils, dinner
Delicious duck

Although quite full, we found room for quince and apple crumble with a choice of Muscat or sweet Riesling. We spent an interesting three hours enjoying the food and wine combinations. This style of dining is great for trying new tastes in both food and wine and we were pleased to find some novel interesting wines.

The staff are friendly, very knowledgeable about wine and they were happy to provide us with the details of the wine we tasted.
