AFTER DINNER SNACKS
We always love dining at Whisk and this time was no exception. Set in the trendy and stunning dining venue, we enjoyed their new Penfolds Wine set menu. Each dish was impeccably presented and stayed true to their chef’s fresh and innovative style. We especially loved the juicy grain fed beef and deliciously crisp chocolate dessert. A perfect date night menu.
The enlightened wine destination WHISK, a Michelin-recommended restaurant of The Mira Hong Kong, unveils a seasonal dinner set menu featuring Australia’s wine heritage in a glass showcasing the versatile palette of Penfolds wines alongside 5 courses creatively paired by Chef de Cuisine, Bjoern Alexander.
From the makers of the Grange, considered an iconic red wine of international reputation and a quality standard against which all other Australian red wines are judged, a range of five distinctively different Penfolds wines has been selected for an autumn menu sourcing finest quality ingredients to match.
Opening with highest grade delicate shellfish paired with vibrant Penfolds 2010 Koonunga Hill Autumn Riesling from Barossa Valley that pays homage to the original white wine trials by Penfolds from 1970’s, the entire menu composition is fresh and aromatic featuring lemon verbena, basil queen of Siam, lemon grass among other herbs.
Complementing the creamy smoked eel is the crimson red Penfolds Bin 23 Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir, a bold and dynamic addition to the Bin collection which displays opulent notes of wild raspberry and cherry on the palate and expressive nose.
A highlight of the menu is the succulent cut of premium grain fed Scottish beef paired with the smallbatch, single vineyard Penfolds 2010 Magill Estate Shiraz, which is intrinsically linked to Penfolds beginnings. Hand-picked from the original heritage-protected Magill vineyard of Adelaide’s suburbs, fruit is crushed, fermented and matured on-site at the 160 year-old Penfolds Magill winery resulting in a sleek, contemporary wine, crafted in the old fashioned way. Magill Estate is one of Penfolds’ luxury range selections from the original house of Penfolds where the most prized Grange was created.
The rich chocolate dessert with nutty and vanilla tones creates an indulgent harmony with Penfolds Club Reserve Aged Tawny, a multi-regional blend of reserved barrels of fortified wines from various regions of South Australia.
The 5-course dinner set creatively pairing Australia’s famed wines with contemporary European cuisine is priced at HK$1,280 (add HK$268 or HK$406 for wine pairing) while the 3-course option starts from HK$680 (add HK$188 or HK$326 for wine pairing).
