The Gourmet Pantry is proud to present our Tastes of Country – Indigenous Hamper Range which includes the Premium Treats with Red Wine Hamper. This unique hamper includes the Mt Yengo Sa Shiraz. Enjoy this Shiraz from Australia's first indigenous wine company along with Australian native foods and botanical flavours from other First Nations producers.
The St Hugo Barossa Shiraz is a superb example of classic Barossa Shiraz. Bold, full-flavoured and complex, it offers great depth and silky tannins. Magnificent drinking now but will reward medium-term cellaring. ‘Matured 18 months in (55% new) 90/10% French/American oak barrels. An impressive vintage for St Hugo, leading out with a full, vibrant purple hue. A deep, compact yet bright core of crunchy blackberries, black cherries and satsuma plum hails a great vintage in the Barossa. You’ll find this wine in our St Hugo Shiraz & Greatest Gourmet hamper and the St Hugo Barossa Shiraz & Christmas Selection hamper.
Every vintage of the iconic 2018 St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon has been awarded Gold Since 1980 and this year was no exception. With its 18 months in French Oak, and notes of blueberries and cocoa, it is easy to see why this wine has been described as “a quintessential St Hugo of might and poise”. Floral and elegant, with balanced fine tannins in support of a regional and varietal fruit profile. Ideal drinking from 2020 to 2029. Find this exceptional wine in our Ultimate Gourmet Hamper with St Hugo Cabernet Sauvignon.
Great wines come from great locations and the Stoneleigh Latitude Pinot Noir found in our Stoneleigh hamper range is no exception. Latitude wines are crafted from grapes sourced from the ‘Golden Mile’; a strip of land covered with ancient sunstones and highly regarded for its outstanding grape-growing conditions. The Latitude Pinot Noir is a deep magenta colour with hints of purple. Complex aromas of plum compote, baking spices, vanilla and toasty oak continue to evolve in the glass. The palate is rich and concentrated with firm tannins, and the highlighted sweet fruit flavours are balanced by good acid structure.
Lloyds Block wines are made from a blend of grape varietals which enables their winemakers to produce more complex and well-rounded wines with enhanced aromas, flavours, colour and texture. Their Cabernet Merlot found in the Gourmet Treats with Red Wine Hamper is an elegant wine with good oak integration. The wine displays rich fruit flavours and aromas of blackberries, raspberry, and spice evident on the palate giving a rich long-lasting pleasant finish. Pairing perfectly with barbecued beef and lamb with seasoned greens, lamb roast with eggplant, moussaka or lasagne with béchamel sauce, veal parmigiana and even pepperoni pizza.
