Deluxe Gift Basket
The Deluxe Gift Basket offers you the best of the sea, the mountains and the Algarve Barrocal. Through savory and sweet delicacies and a great red wine from Touriga Nacional.
The Deluxe Gift Basket offers you the best of the sea, the mountains and the Algarve Barrocal. Giving you the pleasure of tasting, remembering the sun and the beach, the sea breeze, recreating the satisfaction of relaxing on a terrace enjoying an excellent red wine produced in Albufeira, a short distance from the Mediterranean coast and the beautiful beaches of this county.
The Esquerdino Red wine that you will find in this Deluxe Basket is produced from Touriga Nacional, the noblest grape variety in Portugal, capable of producing excellent varietal wines. The berries have a thick skin and the variety adapts to different climatic conditions. Scarlet tulip red color, slightly floral fruity aroma, red fruits and notes of violets, bergamot and dried Mediterranean herbs. Its structure is quite firm, with balanced and enveloping acidity, with some minerality and a very persistent and elegant finish. Touriga Nacional, being a variety that produces expressive and tightly structured wines, requires equally rich and characterful dishes to help complement its abundant fruit and opulent tannins.
From the Mountains to the Coast, this Algarve-style wine pairs well with red meats, game, white meats and sausages, such as the “Painho” Iberian Pork smaked sausage from the Algarve upland, which we offer you in this exquisite basket. But also the tasty Good Boy Tuna Pâté, produced from fresh fish caught on the Portuguese coast, or the Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, totally natural, without any preservatives, apart from the ancestral natural preserve of olive oil. Fresh roasted sardines are one of the most sought after fish in the Algarve during the summer, when their capture and sale is allowed. As they are a seasonal product, through this wonderful preserve you can enjoy this fish, rich in flavor and health benefits, throughout the year. These sardines from Conserveira do Sul were even awarded a Gold medal in 2020.
To finish off your most elaborate dishes, Flor de Sal Belamandil, harvested daily, manually and in small quantities, through a meticulous process of selecting the best salt crystals, light and fragile, on the surface of the small salt pans in Olhão. In this way, Fleur de Sel comes to you in its purest and most natural state, without additives or washings, just as nature offers us.
And because this Deluxe Basket could not only be made from savory delicacies, we bring you the sweet element through the magnificent orange blossom honey from the S. Bartolomeu de Messines area of the municipality of Silves (the orange capital) and has a mild flavor. It is considered a nectar honey, with a translucent golden yellow color. But also the traditional Algarve Fig and Almond Cheese, a delicious typical sweet that combines the best ingredients of the region: figs, almonds, arbutus with fennel and cinnamon. A special delicacy, with unique flavors and textures that you won’t want to miss.
Allow yourself to enjoy and surprise with this Deluxe Hamper, rich in flavors, aromas, colors, smells and textures that will transport you to the Algarve, the region of sun, sea and beach, but also the mountains and its people.
