A true gustatory treat with friends Joff and Rene. We went for the seven course tasting menu. The highlight was risotto with shavings of Italian white truffle.

Wine list was an encyclopaedia with prices to match. Stayed sensible and went for an Italian gewurtztraminer from Alto Adige, very fresh (actually served too cold – should have complained but didn’t), floral and typical gewurtztraminer, but not perfectly balanced, with a slightly sharp aftertaste.

The wood pigeon was accompanied by a 2005 pinot noir Marlborough NZ Fromm vineyard. This was fruity, decent, but nothing special. Maybe I should have broken the bank after all and gone for the Felton Road for not much more.
