Benchmark

By Thierry Dessauve

Since opening in April 2003 Benchmark Wine Bar was determined to be the only true wine bar in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and subsequently has established itself as a leader in wine knowledge.

This Australian wine bar plays with a simple but unique style to produce European cuisine that matches a respectable wine list.

The 2016 summer wine list was ‘carefully constructed to reflect varieties that best typify regions and styles’ from New World and Old World wines. A vast selection, it contains 100 wines by the glass and more than 400 by the bottle – a true wine bar.

Mains are changed often to reflect daily produce but a taster of the specials displays an exotic assortment of seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes including a local Snapper fillet, ratatouille, pea puree, lime and coriander alongside confit duck leg, carrot puree, baby beetroots, duck roulettes and savoury caramel.
