You can find Muse in the heart of NSW wine country, housed in a grand industrial building on the Hungerford Hill estate. The menu is packed with flavour, latterly leaning towards Japanese ingredients - an entrée of deer tartare with puffed buckwheat and shimeji is shaped like gyoza in pickled turnip, and seasoned with ginger, sesame and katsuobushi. Miso cream, yuzu and ginger bolster the umami levels in cuttlefish that's been cut into thin noodles. Alongside international wines on the list, there's a good selection of local drops; the main course of venison with horseradish and pearl barley pilaf could go with a glass of Hungerford Hill shiraz, or equally a premier cru Burgundy. Service is nicely orchestrated around the vast room. The palate-cleansing apple, rhubarb and raspberry granita really triumphs, but if you want more, the signature Muse dessert of coconut mousse in a chocolate shell is worth considering, too.
