Anti pasta platter and a salt and pepper squid to share, sat around the wine barrels, picked an amazing red wine ( single vineyard Shiraz) great service and small talk with the American girl on a working holiday and it all went to quick. Enjoyed the wine so much made a beeline the next day to buy a few bottles.
