Restaurant Review: Black Estate

Cuisine 14 October 2018

Black Estate hits home with polish, sophistication and perfectly balanced food. This clever juxtaposition of a black barn on a rural hill, with dishes that are absolutely on point, makes the food seem extra good. With most wines coming from the grapevines surrounding the restaurant, they match the food perfectly; that’s the special touch of a winery restaurant and Black Estate deftly plays the advantage. Locally foraged ingredients might include Gore Bay horokaka and wild celery atop raw groper, a salty, crunchy flavour hit giving the dish a true sense of place. Heat- flavour matches and contrast play out cleverly in a dessert of icy fig leaf ice cream – green herbal notes, a perfect puddle of fig-infused olive oil and buttery hot shortbread. Sweeping views out over the vines underscore the ‘far from anything’ feeling.

Restaurant review: Black Estate, Christchurch

Ewan Sargent for Stuff 17 August 2017

The wine was flowing and it was mostly rosé. The Home Rosé is made from four different grapes and the winter-bare vines all around us had supplied the fruit. Do wines taste better next to their vines?

I think yes – if you want them to.The rosé was a knockout, a bold intense, serious wine, but still enough lightness and shimmeriness to be a lunch tipple.

I found that kind of delicate, confident balance throughout the afternoon at Black Estate.
