The Lane Vineyard
Modern Australian
The Lane Vineyard

From this hilltop eyrie, diners can check out the vineyards and Black Angus-studded paddocks. To match the idyllic setting, chef James Brinklow offers a versatile, seasonal menu, starting with tapas-size tastes such as black pudding and scallop paired with a tartly herbaceous mojo, or mousse-like chicken liver parfait with toasted brioche. Slightly larger entrées include crisp-skinned quail, cooked pink, the breast boned and rolled, with a lemony corn and quinoa salad. By-the-glass wine suggestions span The Lane's varieties and vintages, with a few French wines available by the bottle. The 19th Meeting Cabernet Sauvignon happily accompanies moulded, braised lamb shoulder with broad beans and sweetbreads, but the spoon-tender meat demands a more assertive complement than the delicate morel cream. The buttery, warm-crusted madeleines with passionfruit curd make an irresistible finish.
