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
