Thanks to its sun-drenched deck and chic dining room with views over grapevines, Polperro's daytime charms are undeniable. But this Red Hill winery's appeal as an evening destination shouldn't be overlooked. Come nightfall, the open fire is stoked, tapered candles flicker on every table, and spotlights illuminate the ancient gums that shade the vineyard. Day or night, the menu presents modern interpretations of global classics, such as wagyu beef tartare bundled onto rice crackers, or a Mexi-Japanese mash-up of kingfish sashimi on a crisp tortilla. Next, perhaps seared scallops with nutty cauliflower purée, roasted hazelnuts and a dab of ginger oil. Then share platters of wood-grilled barramundi or glazed lamb ribs that slip effortlessly off the bone. Best you order your own dessert, though, lest you come to blows over the coffee cream with salted chocolate soil, almond ice-cream and vanilla brandy jelly, a triumph of textures and sweet-savoury elements.
