Next we selected the location.
Then we clicked on Cove Bar & Dining Then we click on wine selection
There is a choice of Red or White. The choice was either a Clairault Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot or Hahndorf Sauvignon Blanc. We decided to go with the white and clicked the ‘Order’ button on the Free Wines app. We then showed the waiter the app and that we had selected the Hahndorf Sauvignon Blanc wine using the Freewines app and he came back with the bottle in an ice bucket.
Sauvignon Blanc is the signature variety of the Adelaide Hills and Hahndorf’s is made in the classic Hills style. Super crisp and racy with a refreshing splash of passion-fruit, guava, and distinct lime-peel. Perfect for that chicken BBQ or crispy pork medallions.
Philip made it through most of his lamb shank, which was a huge effort as it was a very large portion. Unfortunately I could only eat half of my fish and was told that I couldn’t take it away with me as Cove Bar and Dining doesn’t have a license to do that. I was disappointed as I hate seeing food go to waste. The same was said about the bottle of wine that we had only half-finished. Even more disappointed. We ended up drinking most of the wine and paid for the meal. Feeling rather sleepy after all the good food and wine, we walked across from the Cove Bar and Dining to the park with views of the Brisbane River and the Goodwill Bridge. I spotted some deck chairs available and moved one over next to the other free one and my husband and I had a nap in comfort. It was a lovely day, if a little warm at 34 o C. After a while some council workers woke us up and took the deck chairs away and we made our way back to the South Bank train station, headed for home in Cleveland.
An enjoyable day with a free bottle of wine courtesy of Free Wines and their easy to use App that allows you to order a bottle of wine for free once you spend $100 in a participating restaurant. We will be using the service again, next time in a restaurant with a license that allows you to take home the bottle. Or be in a larger party than two so that the bottle can be shared.
