As one of Victoria's top wine regions, the Mornington Peninsula is lauded for its pinot noir and chardonnay, and Paringa Estate produces some of the finest. Thankfully, its unfussy, casual-yet-spacious restaurant with requisite bucolic views offers excellent dishes to complement the estate-only wine list. The poached quail with wild mushrooms - a mélange of pine, grey ghost and slippery jacks - and its subtly flavoured stock partner brilliantly with pinot noir. A robust, textural chardonnay demands the vegetarian rotolo - a cylinder of pasta filled with a farce of garlicky roasted pumpkin, spinach, ricotta and parmesan, then sliced and topped with sautéed baby zucchini and their flowers, while a tangy mustard-fruit sauce cuts through the dish's richness. Shiraz also features here and is best matched with a grilled wagyu rump served with toasted brioche crumbs and ribbons of beetroot. A coffee parfait makes for a fond farewell.
