Taking stock with Penfolds at InterContinental Double Bay

InterContinental Sydney Double Bay opened the doors of its Stockroom restaurant to select guests for a first peek into what is set to be perhaps Sydney’s most exciting hotel opening this year.

The hotel took the occasion to also announce its new partnership with Australian winemaker Penfolds, coinciding with the release of The Penfolds Collection today.

An extended selection of Penfolds labels will be featured on the Stockroom wine list, with 2012 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz and 2012 Bin 311 Tumbarumba Chardonnay chosen as its house pours.

Paying homage to 200 years of farming legacy in Double Bay, the Stockroom venue is split in two, with one side featuring glass pantries filled with market-fresh produce and high bar stools, while the other suitable for more formal dining.

Guests enjoyed a five-course degustation by executive chef Julien Pouteau, paired with Penfolds wines, including its most highly-regarded Grange, all chosen by head sommelier, Kabir Antoniak.

Stockroom’s a la carte lunch menu features both light and hearty options, such as saltbush-fed lamb with zucchini flower chips, green harissa and seaweed salt; and alpine salmon with watercress mousseline and native Australian muntries.

In the evening, the menu is sectioned into seafood, roasts designed to share and robata-grilled dishes. Adding to this is a truffle bar and local cheese selection.

In addition to Stockroom, Penfolds wines will be showcased at the hotel’s Stillery gin bar, Rooftop Pool and Lounge, excuslive Club lounge and private courtyard and the guests’ mini-bars.
