We were seated at our own candlelit table which had on it a Mollydooker wine flight placemat which came in handy. The evening started with the Kingfish ceviche with wakame + 2016 “The Violinist” + 2016 “Scooter” Merlot. A heavenly combination. It was light, fresh and the perfect way to start the evening. The second course was Picante scallops and prawns with charred fennel salad with a gorgeous 2016 The Two Left Feet and 2016 The Boxer. I could have eaten plate upon plate of this.
Next up we had the Chargrilled lamb cutlets, truffle celeriac mash, pancetta crumb, red wine jus and confit garlic + 2014 “Enchanted Path” Shiraz Cabernet + 2014 “Carnival of Love” Shirzaz. This was what we came for. Great meat. And we were not disappointed. The juiciness of the lamb and creamy mash hit the spot on one of the coldest nights in winter.
By the time dessert came around, we were STUFFED. Portion sizes were fantastic – if not a little too generous. But we pushed through and took on for the team (you’re welcome). The Caramelised figs, dark chocolate and roasted hazelnut marquise with vanilla labneh was divine… and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t normally gravitate towards figs.
Overall, it was a 10/10 wine dinner. The food was on point, we got to try some incredible wine and fell in love with Molly(dooker). We look forward to the next wine degustation!
