Captain Cook Cruises has launched a prestigious new dining experience on the waters of Sydney Harbour, especially with fine wine lovers in mind.
Teaming up with leading Australian wine producer Penfolds, Captain Cook Cruises has created the Platinum Penfolds Grange Dinner Cruise, onboard its flagship vessel, MV Sydney 2000.
The culinary experience includes a six course degustation menu, matched with a platinum selection of Penfolds bin and vintage wines, which include the Winemaker Cellar Reserve Pinot Gris, Reserve Bin A Chardonnay, Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz, Grandfather Rare Tawny, and a full bottle of the highly celebrated and iconic accompanying the penultimate fifth course.
Taking dining on the harbour to a whole new level, the menu itself features canapés with 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 petit 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, unbeatable views of Sydney Harbour at night and an open bar.
