with Cauliflower Cous Cous, roasted Grapes & Minted Yoghurt

The birthplace of Victorian wine, the picturesque Yarra Valley region is renowned for cool climate expressions like its exceptional Chardonnay. With stunning views of the valley and of the Rochford vineyards, Isabella's Restaurant is a must-visit. Chef Raki Andriana combines classic flavours with modern twists, as this indulgent chermoula-roasted chicken - perfectly complemented by the rich stylings of a Rochford Chardonnay - superbly demonstrates.
