Captain Cook Cruises has partnered with leading Australian wine producer Penfolds, to launch the Platinum Penfolds Grange Dinner Cruise, a new prestige dining experience on Sydney Harbour for lovers of fine wine.
Held on-board flagship vessel, MV Sydney 2000, the Platinum Penfolds Grange Dinner Cruise includes a six course degustation menu and a platinum selection of Penfolds bin and vintage wines to complement each course. A full bottle of Penfolds Grange; arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and an official Heritage Icon of South Australia; accompanies the penultimate fifth course.
The complete Penfolds platinum selection includes Winemaker cellar Reserve Pinot Gris, Reserve Bin A Chardonnay, Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz, Grandfather Rare Tawny and the bottle of Grange.
The six course degustation menu features canapés and sparkling wine on arrival; slow cooked pork belly in apple cider and pan fried scallops; Queensland Snapper with grilled King Prawn; Osso Bucco ragu with pumpkin gnocchi; seared aged angus beef fillet with sautéed mushrooms and rich seeded mustard jus; and petite bite of apricot tiramisu with a mini pistachio biscotto.
The Platinum Penfolds Grange Dinner Cruise also includes priority boarding from Circular Quay, a Star Deck welcome reception, guaranteed platinum window seating, million dollar views of Sydney Harbour at night and an open bar of top shelf spirits and liqueurs, local and imported beers, liqueur coffee and soft drinks.
“We are really excited to partner with Penfolds and to offer this new cruise, which we believe brings dining on Sydney Harbour to a new level”. Says Anthony Haworth, General Manager, Captain Cook Cruises.
