Balgownie Estate

Adding one more winery restaurant to the Yarra Valley list. The drive to Balgownie Estate was a beauty! The photos are no where near doing the view justice. Balgownie is located in Yarra Glen, a route that I have not taken before this. It was such a refreshing change of scenery, not that I am bored of the usual routes that I take, of course. I never want to take all this for granted.

On the way to the restaurant.

The view from Rae's Restaurant @ Balgownie Estate. The resort was beautiful. I totally forgot to take some photos until we settled down at the restaurant.

The wife had the flounder. The scallops were super fresh too.

I had the duck with some lovely caramelised shallots. Had a glass of their Shiraz to match this dish. I must say, the Shiraz was delicious! I would have preferred a more generous pour though.

I know it doesn't look like much in the photo, but this chocolate pyramid mousse was amazing!

Despite the awesome view and delicious food, the attention was on catching up with our good friends who were visiting from Perth. Simply lovely!
