Gold Dinner Menu

CANAPES & SPARKLING WINE – Served on arrival

A burst of refreshing flavours explodes across the palate with white pepper, wild strawberries with a slatey minerality to make this a versatile wine suitable both as an aperitif or to partner with a diverse range of food.

HERB SALAD – with rocket pesto and aged Italian parmesan paired with PENFOLDS MAX’S CHARDONNAY
Flavours of citrus, white nectarine and lemon curd preside over complexing characters of almond meal and deft oak. A delightful creamy palate with a soft line of acid fading ever so slowly to a distant palate horizon

CASARECCE PASTA – with rocket pesto and aged Italian parmesan paired with PENFOLDS MAX’S SHIRAZ CABERNET A medium-bodied, balanced wine. An approachable Penfolds style at release – shelf to glass.

ANGUS CENTRE CUT TENDERLOIN – served with sautéed mushrooms and rich jus paired with PENFOLDS ST. HENRI SHIRAZ St. Henri is a time-honoured Shiraz and unusual among high quality Australian red wines as it does not rely on any new oak. Pleasing both sweet and savoury tastes with a most appealing lingering impression.

BLACK VIOLET CHEESECAKE paired with PENFOLDS FATHER 10YO TAWNY PORT Arguably the most refined wine in Penfolds Tawny portfolio, replete with elegance and power. Exhibiting sweet fruitcake flavours, obvious wood aged complexity and concentration. The finish is fresh with a wonderful balance and lingering intensity.
