Rae's Restaurant New Lunch Menu

Rae’s Restaurant at Balgownie Estate in the Yarra Valley has launched a delicious new lunch menu with a range of fabulous new dishes. The Grilled Pork Sirloin with baby fennel, apple Waldorf salad and mustard mayo was a stand out.

A perfect match with the 2015 Balgownie Estate Chardonnay – Bendigo.

2017 Vintage Update

We have had a busy weekend harvesting at Balgownie Estate Yarra Valley with sunny and warm weather bringing the grapes to a perfect ripeness and balance. Our picking crews have been hard at work hand harvesting both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir over the course of just three days. This has been a mammoth effort to pick all the fruit in such a short time and extra pickers were brought in to ensure that all the grapes were hand-picked in a timely manner. 

In Bendigo the crews have been hard at work harvesting Shiraz from a number of different vineyards. The fruit has been looking terrific and the winemaking staff are excited at the potential for exceptional finished wines. This week Shiraz from Rock Block, Railway Block, North Block and the Lone Gum Vineyard have been harvested by hand to ensure that only the best grapes are used. Each vineyard is picked in three separate passes to ensure that the best quality is picked first and kept as a separate batch in the winery.

All the fruit coming ripe together and being picked together means that Tony and the winemaking staff are in for a busy time over the following weeks.
