Bentley Restaurant & Wine Bar Wine List
About Bentley Restaurant & Wine Bar
Bentley Restaurant and Wine Bar has found a new lease of life since moving into the grand dining room of the Radisson Blu Hotel in the heart of Sydney’s city. With the move, it’s evolved from neighbourhood wine bar to CBD heavy hitter, oozing style and confidence. The restaurant is very much it's own space within the hotel – black steel scaffolding lends a moody yet polished warehouse vibe that’s worlds away from the hotel lobby.
The offering is multifaceted; you can sit at the bar and sample from a creative snacks menu, or opt for the main dining room and choose between à la carte or degustation. Slick industrial design, inventive food and an extensive wine list ensure it is well placed in Sydney's fine dining scene.
About the Bentley Restaurant & Wine Bar Wine List
The Bentley cellar is impressive. Owner & Sommelier Nick Hildebrandt has been amassing wine for the collection since 2005 and few wine lists in Sydney come close to offering as much depth.
Though there is a sizeable offering of Australian wine, the focus here is on cult French. Impressive feature pages of Maison Trimbach, Clos Rougeard and Jacques Selosse are standouts, and though the collections from the Rhone, the Loire and Burgundy are extensive, it is surely the Jura section that deserves a special mention. Lovingly curated, and well supported by Bentley’s long-standing relationships with boutique importers, the selection includes hundreds of producers. Mini verticals are scattered throughout, and each producer's top cuvees are listed, with many of their best vintages too.
