In the first of a series of restaurant collaboration packs, we’ve teamed up with Lord Cardigan to put together this awesomely eclectic and enticing six-pack.
Lord Cardigan in Albert Park is the brainchild of wife-and-husband team Dominique Bolger and John Singer. Established in 2007, it’s been a partner of ours from the outset. It’s firmly entrenched in the affections of Melbourne’s diners as a restaurant imbued with a mood of quiet indulgence. Dominique’s warmth and affable style front-of house are the perfect pairing for John’s thoughtful and beautifully presented dishes.
Dominique curates a dynamic and ever-changing list, and she’s selected the following gems to share with you.
In addition to the wines, you’ll receive a recipe card for Lord Cardigan’s pink-roasted duck breast with truffled polenta, roasted beetroots and sprouts and truffled white wine jus, which Dominique says goes down a treat with the G.D. Vajra Barbera d’Alba.

2019 Shadowfax Macedon Ranges Chardonnay

Generous, flavoursome, and yet quite refined. I’m thinking peach, nashi pear, Japanese ginger and grapefruit, a little clove spice oak. It’s glossy, with a smooth almond flavour, a little grip, but quite viscous in feel, spice and ripe lime laid on through a long and juicy finish. Lovely wine. Easy to like. 93 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

2018 Pittnauer Pitti Rosé

Strawberry and redcurrant, a slight smokiness, and green herb. Fresh style, all about acid drive, crunch and juicy blood orange tang. Chalkiness on a tart and lively finish. More a white wine style of Rose, but good energy here. 91 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

2019 Punt Road Gamay

What a charming and tasty wine this is. Cherry and little raspberry frogs leaping into a bowl of black pepper, gin and cinnamon, a wisp of smokiness in the background. It’s supple and fruity, but kind of meaty and spicy too, with gentle graphite tannin grip, and strawberry and spice running on a good long finish. So nicely done. 93 Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

2016 Balnaves Cabernet Sauvignon

The more concentrated wine of the three Bordeaux-inspired wines outside of the Tally Reserve. Black olive, bay leaf, graphite and cassis swirl about, bolstered by a sheen of sexy oak, following an extended 18 months in French gear (50% new). This is a crowd-pleaser already, with ample fruit and coffee grind tannins tapering to a long finish. This said, it will age prodigiously. 96 points. Ned Goodwin MW, James Halliday Wine Companion 2020
