Montalto Vineyard & Olive Grove – Red Hill

Montalto has really set the benchmark of what a winery should be… in my view anyway.

Awarded one hat by The Age Good Food Guide for a good reason… and its not just the food that impresses!

Entree we have Tuna avocado tartare with lemon and ginger vinaigrette. Very light and perfectly balanced. Lacked a bit of punch though. 8/10

image

Entree, Scallops and beets with a raspberry vinaigrette.. Delish! 9/10.

For main, the eye fillet is cooked medium rare to perfection and paired with celeriac puree, asparagus and glazed shallots… YUM! 9/10

image

Main Course – Loin of Lamb, very tender is paired with some herbed gnocchi, peas and shaves Parmesan… very hearty yet sophisticated… 8/10.

As always we are extremely full by the time desert comes. I try not to have desert… but cant resist to have a bite or to as always! So desert is usually for “2” (sharing is caring!). This tasted a lot better than it looks… perfectly moist flour less chocolate fudge with a very light chocolate mousse is not too sweet at all! In fact i regret not devouring the whole one alone! Big Tick here.. 9/10.

Floor to ceiling windows overlooking the fabulous winery in which you can soak up the true feeling of Red Hill and the fabulous Mornington Peninsula.

You may also take a stroll through the vineyard afterward to truly experience all Montalto has to offer.

There is also a cafe next to the restaurant which has a garden like setting with seats set outside the winery for a more casual lunch.

Highly recommended.
