Make a truly grand statement by presenting a deserving recipient with this gift box filled with everybody’s festive favourites. It is characterised by an exotic assortment of gourmet and a pair of matching wines guaranteed to delight and surprise.
This Christmas gift hamper is specially made for the chocolate lover, and our three main inclusions are impossible to disappoint. Firstly, Springhill Farm‘s “boozy slice” puts the rum back in rum-and-raisin, a delicious chocolate slice that makes you think of all your favourite drinks.
Secondly, and new to Gift Sensations this year is Charlotte Piper, a local, family-owned boutique chocolatier from Kerang in regional Victoria. Crafted locally but in the Belgian tradition, a selection of assorted dark chocolate mendiants are included to inspire and delight the senses.
Finally, Chocolatier Pure Indulgence serves a generous assortment of milk and dark chocolates, to suit everybody’s taste.
A fun, family-friendly inclusion is Snowy Mountains Cookies’ cinnamon spiced biscuit package, baked with love in Jindabyne, NSW. Like the shortbread, it’s another festive baked good loved by all, and the variety produced by Snowy Mountains Cookies is made with all natural ingredients in the spirit of the Mountains.
Our culinary tour of regional Australia continues in Byron Bay. The seaside town that happens to be the culinary capital of Australia prides itself on handmade artisan creations made with local, all-natural ingredients. There’s no better way to showcase the real taste of Byron than its native macadamia, sourced from the Cape Byron hinterland. Brookfarm roasts local macadamias in house and coats them in a divine saltbush infusion. Simply delectable.
Look a little deeper and the Baylies Epicurean Delights company of the Adelaide Hills serves up the finest blue cheese infused crackers. It’s no surprise that these crackers are perfect to marry up with your favourite blue cheese, however the possibilities are endless. These biscuits’ pleasant savoury taste matches with fruits, dips and cheeses of all strengths and provenances.
Rounding off an impeccable gift, Maxwells Treats olive tapenade will delight and inspire. Handmade in the NSW South Coast to an recipe held a regional secret for generations, it’s a French taste sensation that adds a vibrant impact to almost any traditional savoury dish. An obvious partner to the tapenade is the aforementioned blue cheese crackers, however we doubt there will be any leftovers. In the off-chance there is, it’ll make for a superb addition to a Boxing Day picnic lunch.
For those with an exacting taste for wine, this is the gift basket of choice. When your recipient cracks open Tamburlaine Organic Wines‘ Grenache-Shiraz-Malbec (GSM), they will enjoy what is simply a celebration of red wine. Typically, the ‘M’ in GSM stands for the Mourvèdre varietal, however Tamburlaine chooses to do things differently, for maximum effect. Using grapes from the Grenache and Shiraz varietals, combined with a floral Malbec, all grown in the cool-climate, high altitude vineyards of the Orange Wine Region; the result is a unique experience that complements red meat dishes and sharp cheeses. Their rendition of the GSM, the Grenache-Shiraz-Malbec, has won the Gold Award at the New South Wales Wine Awards, a Silver Award (90 Points) at the Cowra Wine Show, and Bronze (88 Points) at the Australian Highlands Wine Show. A truly standout drop.
Your recipient will also enjoy Tamburlaine Organic Wines‘ fruity and flavourful Sauvignon Blanc from the legendary Western Australian Margaret River wine region. With organically grown grapes of a high quality vintage, your recipient will enjoy a wine with notes of lime zest, grapefruit and passionfruit flavours. Well suited to a beachside picnic or a grilled chicken or fish dish.
In its stylish and beautifully packaged presentation box, the contents of this gift cannot fail to satisfy the gourmet afficionado nor the wine lover. Presented in a large glossy gift box (40 x 39 x 9 cm), adorned with beautiful chartreuse Gift Sensations ribbon, enclosing your personalised greeting card.
