Sydney's Cirrus Wins Australia's Wine List of the Year Award
Spice Temple is a modern Chinese restaurant with a culinary focus on China’s lesser known regions. The menus are designed to be shared and enjoyed banquet style in their intimate and seductive surrounds. Driven by a philosophy of incorporating world-class service with a deep respect for the highest quality produce Spice Temple offers modern Chinese food as it’s rarely been seen before in Australia. Spice Temple Sydney is the very worthy winner of Best Small Wine List – Maximum 100 wines.
For establishments that list no more than 100 wines, this award, sponsored by Deja vu Wine Co, focuses on carefully thought-out, impeccably balanced, slightly larger lists.
Spice Temple, where “every wine fights for its place,” is a masterclass in the selection and presentation of a small wine list of just 100 wines. The adherence to grape varieties and styles from around the world that shine with Asian flavours reveals a close eye to detail, with a mix of small, edgy producers and alternative grape varieties sitting shoulder to shoulder with the odd classic. The cocktail section – including non-alcoholic and dessert styles – is a winner.
