The interior is chic and striking with dark panels, warm lights and beautiful fittings. The estate’s main vineyard is on Duck Creek Rd but the cellar door is at the stylish Plume Restaurant, which the winery also owns and operates. The wines are Old World-inspired with deep, savoury, complex flavours, rather than dominated by bright fruits.
Things to know
The tasting flights are an excellent way to sample a selection of the wines.
Rosé shows lifted floral and raspberry notes with a hint of sweetness, yet finishes crisp and dry. Runner Duck is justifiably proud of its Bordeaux blends; also worthy of note is the sumptuous syrah.
Using fresh seasonal produce, the well-thought-out menu offers the usual favourites plus a few tempting dishes with Asian and Pacific influence. You can dine indoors or on the patio, and from this elevated site there are views over the vineyard and the rural landscape. The wine list offers Runner Duck Estate wines and Plume house wines, as well as classics from other regions and Europe.
