St Hugo

It's no surprise that wine is the focal point here: the restaurant is surrounded by vineyards and a nearby cellar door showcases St Hugo's collection. The multinational owner, Pernod Ricard, is also presenting the venue as a lavish extension of its prestige wine brand. An intimate dining room has been constructed within a restored 1854 ironstone building, flanked by a grand wine tasting lounge and expansive timber deck. The restaurant serves only tasting menus matched to St Hugo wines - and chef Mark McNamara revels in the challenge, using ingenuity to avoid obvious or conservative pairings. Robust mulloway fillet in red wine, shallots, fresh peas, wakame and thyme is boldly teamed with Vetus Purum Cabernet Sauvignon. Subtle cross-cultural fusion is evident in superb twice-cooked duck breast and braised leg with black sesame and molasses. For dessert, whipped avocado and macadamia tart is well matched to luscious tawny.
