PORT PHILLIP ESTATE
263 RED HILL RD, RED HILL SOUTH 5989 4444 PORTPHILLIPESTATE.COM.AU Stuart Deller’s smart, Euro menu is an equal match to the sweeping views across the vines at Port Phillip Estate. Whether a twirl of perfect tagliolini on which a fillet of excellent red mullet seasoned with bottarga lies, or pork jowl served with apple ketchup and Jerusalem artichoke crisps, this is flavour-first cooking that’s approachable and clever.
Hearty cauliflower spaetzle tossed through capers and olives is a win for the veg team, while the focused wine list celebrates the peninsula.
To finish, caramelised apple terrine, made from fruit from just down the road and drizzled with estate honey, is an elegantly sweet finale. ■ Must-eat dish Caramelised Red Hill apple terrine, Sawyer Road chestnut ice cream ■ Cuisine Contemporary ■ Chef Stuart Deller ■ Price $$ ■ Bookings Yes ■ Open Lunch Wed-sun; dinner Fri-sat ■ Instagram @portphillipestate
