Afternoon wines – Devon On The Wharf

Afternoon wines - Devon On The Wharf
Clos Marguerite Rose ($11.50 NZD) and Passage Rock Chardonnay ($13 NZD).
Devon On The Wharf, Devonport NZ

I loved the location of this restaurant with the amazing view of downtown Auckland. I just wish their bar program would have been smarter than using tinted glasses to serve wine. This made our wine look disgusting and kept throwing me off every time I wanted to take a sip. Our wine looked liked an appletini and Kool-Aid for god’s sake!

I liked this dish. The shrimp were a bit overcooked, but the sauce was SO tasty! It almost tasted like garlic shrimp tapas. Yum!

I came to The Peabody to see the march of The Peabody ducks, hehe! I know it’s super cheesy, but I love this kind of stuff. I must say that it was kind of a cool experience. The build up was much cooler than the march itself, but it was nice to relax at The Lobby bar while waiting.
