Wine Gift Boxes
What’s a good dinner party without a nice wine pairing to go with it? If you’re looking for classy and upmarket for your next house-warming or corporate gift for that aloof colleague, a wine gift box is the way to go. Hand-picked by Australian wine reviewer and host of 2GB’s Food & Wine Show, Ben Malouf, our wine gift boxes feature boutique Australian and international wines, from unique wineries off the beaten track. These gift boxes are carefully curated, featuring three bottles of wine, tasting notes and a personalised gift card.
The gift of wine has much more complexity than just one selection, which is why we currently have five different gift packs available for online purchase. If you’re looking for a romantic evening, we have a red wine gift pack, a perfect gift for the wine lover in your life. For that upcoming dinner party, a wine gift box that goes with any kind of dinner or canape. Celebrating an anniversary or milestone? We’ve got a bubbly box that would be great for you! And for the veterans of the wine world, the connoisseurs and self-proclaimed sommeliers, there’s even a gift pack for even the most well versed wine drinkers.
Let’s take a closer look at the wine and champagne gift boxes we have online:
AUSSIE RED WINE TRIO
Discover three smooth, easy drinking Australian reds produced by wineries off the beaten track. The Elderton, with its rich notes of forest berries, gives a seamless blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz. For the cabernet sauvignon wine lovers, try tasting the Hilltops region made Moppity Lock and Key Cabernet Sauvignon, with a rich dark core of brambly fruit, aniseed and dark cocoa. Winemaker Jason Brown has produced the perfect Aussie representation of a balanced and ripe cab sav! And finally, the Alkoomi Frankland River Shiraz, from one of WA’s largest family-owned wineries. This shiraz pours a vibrant crimson, and you’ll get lovely notes of black cherries, chocolate and vanilla with layers of pepper and spice, typical of Frankland River shiraz.
HAPPY HOUR SPARKLING WINE TRIO
We’ve hand-picked an Italian, French and Australian sparkling wine to delight the taste buds. This is an ideal gift for those who enjoy a good glass of bubbles. In this gift pack we have the refreshingly dry, Da Luca Prosecco which has aromas of peach and apricot, a fresh, zingy palate, a touch of sweetness and a clean finish. Made in dry brut style our second sparkling wine is the ‘Les Bulles’. With it’s name in French meaning bubbly, this sparkling wine is pale pink, fresh winter berries and orchard fruit on the nose and pairs well with brie and camembert- a perfect pairing for that celebratory charcuterie board. Fruit-driven and full flavoured, Charles de France is a fine blend of Blanc de Noir grapes and is made in the traditional method to achieve elegance and finesse.
CONNOISSEUR RED WINE BOX
Our first red wine, Rocky Gully Cabernets is not for the faint-hearted, with deep earthy notes and underlying hints of dark plum and tobacco leaf. It has a lovely weight to it, as does our next wine, Clos Clare Cemetery Block Shiraz that has many integrations of tannins with flavours of blueberries, red cherry and turmeric. And for the final touch, our red wine connoisseurs can enjoy the Brini Wines Gsmbrini GSM, a medium-bodied and silky tasting wine. To top it all off, this wine has a beautiful aftertaste of spicy dark raspberries, liquorice, vanilla and an above average ABV at 15.2%.
PONTING WINES MIXED PACK
This mixed pack of wine is a trio of Ponting wine. A Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon make up this box, all with detailed tasting notes in explanation of wine-making conditions, aromatics, tannins and flavours for each bottle of wine. The Ponting First Sauvignon Blanc Session 2020 is fresh and floral, with wonderful texture and a long crisp palate- perfect for an afternoon drink during golden hour. The Pinnacle Mclaren Vale Shiraz 2017 has been fermented in traditional open fermenters, with distinctive Mclaren Vale characteristics shining through it’s tannins and aromatics. And finally, the Close of Play Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 is particularly strong with a soft and silky palate. The perfect finale to any dinner party.
KINGS CREED WINES MIXED PACK
Discover three smooth, easy drinking Australian wines produced by one of Australia’s best wine makers and an amazing partnership with ex Wallaby Nathan Sharpe, an absolute dream pairing for the rugby and wine lover! The first wine is the King’s Creed Pinot Grigio, which has a crisp pear-tasting palate with a touch of citrus. The King’s Creed Chardonnay takes a nice turn to elegance in its texture and balance, perfect for those that like drinking in style. And the King’s Creed Shiraz ends this trio with a richness that can only be made from the blend of raspberries and a peppery aroma.
WHY NOT A HAMPER?
You may be thinking, why do we sell our wine gifts in boxes and not hampers? Sure the gourmet hamper is a staple of housewarming gifts, the welcome present to give when you don’t know what to bring. But a box? There are plenty of reasons why wine gift boxes are better. It’s more professional looking, an intentional purchase, able to be gift-wrapped with ease. Wine bottles can also fit more neatly in a box, ensuring ease of delivery and overall visual niceness that you can’t get with a misshapen hamper.
