With the foundations of a big ol' cook up, this is the gift to give the one who believes that people who love to eat (and drink wine) are always the best people...
Vino Volta "Post Modern Seriousism" Grenache
This is a bright, exuberant and modern expression of Grenache! Think wild strawberries, raspberry and sour cherry - breathe in florals, sarsaparilla and dried herb. She’s juicy upfront, with a whack of rustic tannins to maintain shape. Grenache is historic, and a star variety of the Swan Valley. The fruit that made this particular drop comes from a vineyard more than 30 years old near the base of the Darling Scarp - for the wine nerds, think gravel and sand over coffee rock. The wine itself was naturally fermented, with some whole bunches and an extended maceration - low SO2 maximises the fruit expression. ABV: 13.5%
Ciao Pasta Campanelle x 230g
Made from 100% Australian durum wheat semolina - now regarded by Italian millers/producers as some of the best in the world - and purified water, the curly trottoloni style is beautifully textured so as to hold sauces with superiority! This ain't your usual store bought pasta - it's so good your dinner guests will never know it wasn't made by hand in your own kitchen. We fully encourage saying it was!
