Tank Stream Hotel champions localism with new ‘Taste of NSW’ menu

June 28, 2019 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Sydney’s Tank Stream Hotel is highlighting its deep connection with NSW by offering diners a ‘Taste of NSW’ wine menu to complement dishes utilising the best of NSW produce.

Fresh water from the Tank Stream was the reason the NSW colony was established at what is now called Sydney Cove – and the Tank Stream Hotel was developed above the still-flowing stream, which prompted the naming of the hotel restaurant, Le Petit Flot (the little stream).

Le Petit Flot’s chefs and restaurant team have designed a special set of dishes to showcase the best of the State’s produce, utilising Wagyu beef rumps from Kilcoy Global Foods in northern NSW; racks of lamb from Junee, pork belly from Braemar, and chicken from the Southern Highlands.

They will be partnered with a new selection of wines from long-established NSW wineries such as Hungerford Hill and Dalwood Estate, Australia’s oldest wine label. The wines showcase classic local Hunter Valley varietals such as Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz as well as Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the cooler Hilltops region.

“Disappointingly, NSW wines are often ignored by Sydney restaurants, in complete contrast to the attitude of restaurants in other State capitals, where they love to celebrate their local wines and produce,” says Tank Stream Hotel GM, Klaus Kinatader.

“NSW has outstanding produce and our chefs have come up with an attractive range of dishes to showcase what the State can offer, which we are matching with a selection of quality NSW wines to provide a rich taste of the State.

“We get a lot of international visitors staying with us and they usually want to try local produce and wines. It is a key part of the travel experience and given that our hotel has such a powerful connection to the State’s history we thought it was time to celebrate our premium produce and wines.”

Chief winemaker of Hungerford Hill wines, Bryan Currie, said that NSW wines deserved a far higher profile in Sydney restaurants and congratulated the Tank Stream Hotel for their vision to promote NSW wines.

“This is the same vision that I have as a winemaker with the complete wine range from both brands entirely sourced from NSW grown fruit,” said Mr Currie.

“The colonial histories of the Tank Stream Hotel and Dalwood Estate marry well. Dalwood is Australia’s oldest wine brand and birthplace of Hunter Valley wine. Dalwood has crafted premium wines in the lower Hunter Valley continuously since 1828. The early colonial wines of Dalwood such as ‘Shepherd’s White’ (now Semillon) and ‘Hermitage’ (now Shiraz) were always enjoyed in Sydney and rightfully take their place as living vinous history at Le Petit Flot.

“NSW has an extraordinary range of vineyard sites from warm to cold climate that produce richly flavoured medium bodied wines of character and personality that speak strongly of their region.

“NSW wines are versatile and accompany the fresh produce of the state beautifully and should be celebrated in all the restaurants of Sydney!”
