REVIEW

World-renowned wines. A 32-year-long (and counting) run of concerts. A grand two-storey cellar door deep in Margaret River karri country. Leeuwin Estate is every bit the regional showpiece that its international reputation suggests. What this also means, of course, is that it attracts everyone from tourists in tracksuits to minted bons vivants who come and go via chopper, so necessity dictates a similarly broad food offering. Although steak and (very good) chips and aïoli hit the mark for comfort dining, Dany Angove's eclectic menu isn't without its more inventive moments: chèvre counters the punch of buckwheat risotto with charred cauliflower and eggplant, and sweet marron makes nice with a cool tomato consommé. Well-pitched service is suitably laid-back, plus you can take lunch on the veranda overlooking the property's natural amphitheatre. And don't forget, the museum and cellar-door-only bottlings bring the special to any occasion.
