Dinner Sat 6pm-10pm
Ambition is writ large on this Yarra Valley arriviste, a Fender Katsalidis architectural statement in curving wood, glass and steel, with a handful of helipads should you wish to arrive by air. Levantine Hill is aiming for the big league, and Teage Ezard is its star recruit, sticking here to the tropes of winery dining with his dégustation-only menu (choose from five or eight courses), but doing it with cool, quiet confidence. Kingfish sashimi is given a rev-up with a cucumber gel, miso mustard and squid-ink tapioca cracker, while the prettiest faux-garden features figs, asparagus, peas and nasturtium with goat's curd and jamón Ibérico on a rye and olive crumb. A nettle sauce and pepperberry jus is an ideal counterpoint to luxe Sher wagyu, just-seared and buttery, while the chocolate orb is a gooey-centred Amaretto and raspberry delight. A separate, more casual menu allows you to match your mini-burgers with Château Lafite Rothschild.
