In the Southern Excellence Gift Basket we bring together four excellent products from the Algarve: olive oil, wine, figs and almonds. Designed so that you can gift those you love most with Algarve flavors and high quality products.
All the products that are part of this selection of excellence are carefully produced here in the Algarve and some of them are also internationally known and awarded both in Portugal and abroad. It is the unique characteristics of the soil and climate of this magnificent region that give rise to these magnificent products.
The Esquerdino Red Wine that you will find in this basket is produced from Touriga Nacional, the noblest grape variety in Portugal, capable of producing excellent varietal wines. 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.
Monterosa Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced on a farm with 15 hectares of olive groves in the Eastern Algarve in Moncarapacho. The olives are picked by hand and immediately transported to the mill where they are ground with granite millstones, in a mechanical process that dates back to Roman times. The oil produced with them is very elegant and balanced, with a rich fruitiness and a taste of freshly cut herbs. In 2020 Maçanilha Extra Virgin Olive Oil was awarded a Silver Medal in New York and a Gold Medal in Tokyo.
And fig, which is also part of the traditional diet of the people of the Algarve, is one of the emblematic and rich delicacies of the region. When fresh, it is used as a dessert fruit or in jams and sweets. This Fig Jam that you can find at Southern Excellence Gift Basket is made with figs from their own production in the Guia area in Albufeira.
Finally, for a snack, Almonds from the Algarve Toasted with Honey, fleur de sel, sugar and coconut oil. A snack rich in flavors and texture, sweet with salty nuances, and crunchy.
