Description

The only thing more divine than a bottle of wine is a matching pair. Hailing from the Riverina wine region of New South Wales comes a sophisticated Shiraz and Chardonnay pair by long-established family winemakers McWilliams. Tasting notes of the Shiraz deem it to be medium-bodied with airs of red berries and currants, characterised with a hint of spicy mocha oak. The Chardonnay is fresh, crisp and vibrant with fruity notes including those of white peach, honeydew melon and citrus. Both are fine, drinkable wines designed to perfectly complement a traditional Christmas celebration.

Delve deeper into this Christmas gift hamper to uncover a hand-picked selection of fine gourmet designed to bring an air of sophistication back into the art of giving.

From Victorian master bakers Thornton & Wild, a rustic Whisky Fruit Cake showcases the gift’s mature overtones. A dark, rich mixture of sultanas, currants, raisins and a special blend of Christmas spices. The addition of Scotch Whisky is the festive magic that adds a bold flavour and wonderfully moist texture to this delightful inclusion.

The remaining features of this carefully edited Christmas gift hamper are specifically designed to complement each other.

Quintessentially Australian are Emu Bottom Homestead’s delightful ANZAC biscuits, prepared the old fashioned way to this day at a rustic cottage in Sunbury, Victoria. Emu Bottom Biscuits’ enduring recipe traverses generations of Australian history. The biscuits are made with respect to Indigenous Australian bushcraft and ingenuity– these most unique ANZAC biscuits are infused with hand-picked wattle seeds from local Victorian wattle trees, a drought resistant food source rich in protein.

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.

Nougat Limar is a brand new to Gift Sensations this year. The Sydney Morning Herald’s tough food critics have heralded this local company’s handmade nougat the best in Australia, and we tend to agree. In Happy Holidays, we’ve included their soft nougat in dark chocolate. French-style creamy nougat deliberately made not too sweet, adorned with crunchy Australian grown nuts and encased in bittersweet dark chocolate.

Presented in a glossy gift box (34 x 22 x 9 cm), adorned with gorgeous Gift Sensations ribbon, enclosing your personalised greeting card.
