For the sauce In a heavy-based pan, bring Madeira, white wine, shallots, garlic, thyme, bay leaf and peppercorns to the boil. Reduce by half. Add the stock and the veal jus and reduce until the sauce coats the back of a spoon. Strain and pass through muslin. Return to a small saucepan, add the olive cheeks, shallots, parsley.

The 2015 Punt Road Pinot Noir from the Yarra is ideal. It has ripe dark cherry and strawberry fruit, savoury stalk and foresty complexity, with clean red berry-like acidity to match the fat content in the lamb.
