The Chocolates & Red Hamper
There are many new chocolate hampers in our range this year, and one of these exquisite chocolate hampers is the Chocolate & Red Hamper. Inside our Chocolates & Red Chocolate Hampers, recipients will find a premium selection of Willie’s Cacao and Butlers Irish Chocolates.
In addition to delicious chocolates, our chocolate hampers tend to contain a nice bottle of wine and nibbles. The same applies to our Chocolates & Red Hamper Chocolate Hampers, because they contain an additional bottle of Cape Mentelle Shiraz, Maison Fossier Feuilletes and Morgan’s nibbles. In short, these are great gift hampers for anyone with a love of chocolate, Australian shiraz or quality nibble selections.
Moet & Gourmet Nibbles Hamper
Our Moet & Gourmet Nibbles Gift Hampers are also perfect for gourmet lovers, since there are some exquisite gourmet treats and a bottle of champagne inside this hamper. For our Moet & Gourmet Nibbles Gift Baskets, customers can discover brands such as Baylies Epicurean Delights, Partridges Artisan Bakehouse, the Brewer’s Nut Company, Kangaroo Island and many more.
The Moet & Gourmet Nibbles Hamper contains a bottle of Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV Champagne. This champagne is made from more than 100 different wines, which results in the ultimate balance of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay.
Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV is characterised by a typical golden straw colour, which is intertwined with subtle green highlights. It also has a sparkling bouquet with strong hints of green apple and citrus fruits. It also has some mineral nuances and a finish of brioche, cereal and fresh nuts. In short, a complex champagne that will be appreciated by party people and collectors alike.
Red Wine & BBQ Hamper
Our Red Wine & BBQ Gift Baskets could also be an option for a special occasion, especially if the recipient if an avid barbecue lover. Inside these Red Wine & BBQ Gift Baskets, recipients will find countless treats that can be served during a barbecue, but also pantry items for meat preparation and an exquisite bottle of 2012 Rymill Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Rymill Cabernet Sauvignon from our gift baskets is considered a classic Australian cabernet. It clearly provides the perfect blend of red and blue fruits, intertwined with delightful Chinese spices and vanilla in the back palate.
Wine connoisseurs give the Rymill Cabernet Sauvignon an average score of 92 points. However, these wine experts do recommend leaving this Cabernet Sauvignon in the wine cellar for a couple of more years, because a little more added complexity could make this the best Cabernet Sauvignon you have ever tried.
We do need to mention that this red wine accompanies red meats perfectly, so recipients do not have to wait to try this wine. However, if you gift this wine to a wine collector, be sure to mention the recommendations of renowned wine reviewers.
The Classic Port Hamper
One of our Classic Port Gift Baskets is the ideal gift for port-loving recipients. Inside this hamper, recipients will find a handpicked selection of Australian nibbles, but also a genuine bottle of Penfolds Father Ten-Year-Old Grand Tawny Port.
Penfolds Father Ten-Year-Old Grand Tawny Port is a deep red port with a clear red hue and a distinctive yellow edge. It has a vibrant aroma, because the port has been aged in barrels, adding some clear barrel-aged characters in the aroma itself.
The palate of Penfolds Father Grand Tawny Port has a wonderful palate as well. The palate is characterised by complex and lingering taste notes, which includes a great fruit intensity and oak maturation.
In conclusion, Penfolds Father Grand Tawny Port has a lot of characteristics related to its ten-year maturation process. Therefore, we can certainly recommend our port hampers for any recipient with a love for mature wines and ports.
The White Wine & Nibbles Hamper
Our White Wine & Nibbles Hamper is a classic gift for special occasions, but has recently been updated with a new white wine. The new white wine added to this hamper makes the White Wine & Nibbles Hamper even better, because our hamper designer chose the 2016 Robert Oatley Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc.
The 2016 Robert Oatley Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc is made from grapes acquired from Australia’s most reliable wine region – the Margaret River. This area is mainly known for its Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc varieties, which enable local wine producers to create more distinctive wines.
2016 Robert Oatley Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc has some unique tasting notes. In the palate of the wine, connoisseurs can detect clear hints of passionfruit, cut grass and just a hint of lime. The wine also has a lingering, crisp palate, making the 2016 Robert Oatley Signature Series Sauvignon Blanc a probable classic.
In addition to the exquisite Sauvignon Blanc inside this hamper, customers can also count on numerous gourmet treats from some of Australia’s finest gourmet treat producers; this includes brands such as Gourmet Regional, Tasmanian Fruit Pastes, Baylies Epicurean Delights and Partridges Artisan Bakehouse. In conclusion, this is a great all-round hamper that could be used for a variety of special events and occasions. It is also an excellent choice for businesses, since this specific hamper could be used as a corporate gift as well.
