Invited: Hardwicke House

My Ratings: 4-Stars

Cuisine: International
Location: 67 Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, 10050 Penang
RM25-45 per person

Thanks Hardwicke House for the invitation and Gourmet Garden for organising it.

Situated in the Hardwicke Heritage House, the restaurant offers a wide variety of food for their buffet for lunch and dinner and an extensive BBQ range. The restaurant also boast a well stocked wine cellar and imported coffee. The restaurant offers a cooling ambiance away from the heat of the afternoon and the busy streets of the night. the top floor has a wide open space for private function including private dinner and meeting rooms

The cellar is well stocked, mostly from new world wineries. The sommelier and owners of Hardwicke are very knowledgeable in the wine space and art of drinking wine.

The review was basic two parts: first the food tasting and then there's the wine tasting.

The food is good. Hardwicke tries very hard to provide a wide variety of food. There are more variety for dinner than lunch.

For the wine tasting, we had the opportunity to taste 3 distinctly different wines; Friulvini Verduzzo Sparkling (RM55), Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2005 (RM63) and Schubert "Hardwicke Reserve" Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 (RM118/Promo price: RM60)

In a nutshel, Friulvini Verduzzo is an aperitif wine which goes well with first courses, confectionery and fruits. Terra Noble is a new world wine from Chile. It is dry and has a nice natural acidity and goes well with seafood and fish. Finally, New Zealand's Schubert "Hardwicke Reserve" Cab Sauv is a full bodied red with notes of blackberries, plum and dark chocolate, walnut and spices and extremely well structured with layers of super ripe tannins complemented by a long sweet and dark fruit filled finish
