For a restaurant to excel at food and wine matching, there must be synergy between the sommelier and the chef.
That is exactly what occurs at Aubergine.
Sommelier Cyril Thevenet has a depth of knowledge and a passion for wine that is infectious. Teamed with Ben Willis’ contemporary food, they provide you with an unforgettable dining experience.
It is hard to go past the degustation, with the choice of a standard or premium pairing. Both options allow that magical union where there is a thread of compatibility between the wine and the meal, yet both are free to express themselves fully. Thevenet achieves a rare balance of being loyal to the local producers, yet also providing sophisticated Australia-wide and international selections. The varietal mix is exciting and diverse. Enjoy nero d’avola with duck breast, plums and shiso, or perhaps a pedro ximénez and muscat with John Dory.
Don’t miss the opportunity to engage Thevenet in discussion about the wines listed. His thoughts are insightful and will greatly enhance your dining experience. Toni Paterson MW
