Poacher’s Pantry, just out of Canberra, on the Nanima Road is looking very beautiful after her recent makeover.
With extended opening hours for the Christmas season and a special tasting menu, I was very impressed by how well they have created a very relaxed and gorgeous lunch experience.
Whether you choose to go for one of the shared platters, or the full $59 four course menu I’d really recommend taking the lovely opportunity to meet Sarah, Cellar Door Manager, who will help you choose your Wily Trout Vineyard Wine.
We were very impressed with the locally grown (as in just down the road) wines and bagged several to take home.
Wily Trout Premium Pinot Chardonnay 2013 $35 , Blanc de Blanc NV, Wily Trout Sauvignon Blanc 2016 $25, Wily Trout Chardonnay 2014 $25, Wily Trout Rosé 2016 $24, Wily Trout Sauvignon Blanc 2016 $25, Wily Trout Pinot Noir 2015 $28, Wily Trout Shiraz 2014 $27
Our absolute favourites were the vintage pinot chardonnay, rose and pinot noir.
However, the rose was the perfect match for our Christmas Tasting Menu…
