Welcome to what is now becoming an icon in McLaren Vale - for its architectural design and eclecticism.
Walking up to the entrance, music streams from the outdoor speakers and you can't help but notice how The Cube is a mix of geometric shapes and glass panels. The light reflects off the building, capturing the azure blue sky, a stark contrast to the black and white panels. The inside is as unique as the exterior. Walk into the aroma room and experience a range of scents, from the sweet nectar of fruit to the smell of coffee. Travel into the 360 room before heading upstairs to the wine tasting floor. Take in the view from one of the many balconies or indulge in a tasting to excite the palate.
Level 3 feels sparse yet opulent with its mix of tribal art and plush King Henry style chairs. The dining experience is a feast for the eyes and taste buds. When booking, the menu is not disclosed, so we sat and waited in anticipation to see what was to unfold.
We enjoyed a ten-course degustation. The restaurant did not hurry us but invited us to relax and soak in the ambience through unhurried and friendly service.
There is wine to be had, a view of the vineyards and interesting little nuances that create conversational pieces. The food was lovely, as was the service and after three hours, I was definitely comfortably full.
I highly recommend the experience - just don't get lost in the toilet!
