The Queen’s Club has long set the standard for service, dining experience and wine culture in club restaurants. Sommelier Michael Solomons has continuously evolved the offering with a lengthy, compelling, well-judged and balanced wine list. It’s a list many restaurants should aspire to, and ably reflects the current climate of wine drinking in Australia.
Solomons starts with a seriously good line up of grower-producer Champagne, and sets a baseline for wine aficionados with supreme producers of Mosel, Austria, Burgundy and Bordeaux. The global touchstones are mostly all met, but then there are the edgier wines from Australian lo-fi winemakers of the Adelaide Hills, the clutch of wines from international natural wine producers – and in a revolutionary move, a couple of skin-contact whites. Local wines are widely incorporated, and the remarkable runs of matured Australian classics are tempting throughout.
