Lift the lid and pop the cork on our first exceptional bottle – Penfolds Grange Wine 2015. Grange is arguably Australia’s most celebrated wine and is officially listed as a Heritage Icon of South Australia. This wine is crafted using fully-ripe, intensely-flavoured shiraz grapes, resulting in a flavourful, adventurous wine.
Dig a little deeper and you’ll discover our next brilliant bottle – 2016 Joseph Drouhin Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet Grand Cru. Fresh and intense, this wine has notes of citrus, acacia blossom, spice and green apple. Let the bottle age for at least five years (12 or 15 would be better) to truly enjoy its unique flavour.
Next, Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs is a delicate Chardonnay with notes of white flowers, citrus and acacia honey. It has been created by cellar master Hervé Deschamps.
Chateau Climens 2001 is a similarly elegant bottle, with delicate aromas of tropical fruits, honeysuckle and floral notes. It is a medium-bodied wine of monumental richness, extraordinary precision, great purity, and moderate sweetness.
Finally, two wonderful whiskies top this hamper off. First, Glenfarclas 30 Year Old – richly indulgent, this truly amazing whisky was named the Best Commercially Available Single Malt in Australia in 2003, and won Gold at the International Spirits Challenge in 2005. It has a remarkable depth from its long ageing. Finally, Penderyn Single Cask D161 from Wales has notes of cinnamon and pastry on the nose with aromas of orange peel and tropical fruit on the palate, finishing with a delicious vanilla sweetness.

Did you know? The price of a Fortnum’s hamper is always less than the cost of buying its contents and basket individually.
