The Poliziano Chianti Colli Senesi is a beautiful DOCG red wine from the family-owned Poliziano winery outside of Montepulciano in Tuscany, Italy. Founder Dino Carletti named the winery after the 15th Century poet Angelo Ambrogini who came from Montepulciano and was nicknamed “Poliziano”. This Chianti retains the fresh fruity Sangiovese flavours of red fruit, dark cherries and a savoury character. A lighter Italian Sangiovese red wine and a very versatile food wine. Pairing with many foods from antipasto to pasta, cheese or poultry and lighter grilled meats.
This pork pie is traditionally eaten cold and is perfect as part of a Ploughman's Lunch, or with mustard and a cold beer! Made using traditional British Recipes and only the finest free range local pork. The team at Pacdon are highly skilled butchers who bone out the pork in-house, and also make their own lard which gives them their delicious hot water crust pastry. These pies are baked in the traditional manner, without using a supporting hoop or tin, which gives them their classic bow-sided shape of an authentic Melton Mowbray Pork Pie. Now available from our Dairy department.

Our flower department have received a large delivery of locally grown, fresh tulips in an array of beautiful colours. Tulips are sturdy flowers that can last up to 10 days after cutting if you know how to care for them correctly. When shopping for tulips, you may be tempted to buy the tulips with fully-opened, vibrant colored petals. If you prefer them to last a long time, choose tulips that are still tightly closed with some green buds that aren't fully coloured yet. The flowers will open over the course of a few days, giving you more time to enjoy them.

Just arrived in our grocery department! Melbourne Cocoa is the brainchild of Jeremy and Philippa Kennedy-Wilson, the 2nd generation artisans behind Kennedy & Wilson, a label that has delivered award-winning chocolate to chefs and aficionados for over 25 years. Like making great wine or coffee (two other things Melbourne is known for doing very well), making artisanal chocolate requires care, thought, artistry and hard-earned skill. In France, Swizerland and Belgium, chocolatiers have been making world-renowned regionally representative chocolate for more than a century.
For context, most Australian chocolate businesses import their chocolate from overseas and melt it down to create new products. Mlebourne Cocoa painstakingly select ethically produced cocoa and cocoa derivatives from around the world and blend them with Australian milk powders and sugar by hand, in Melbourne's outer east, to create completely unique blends.
Melbourne Cocoa sets out to define a flavour profile distinct to this part of the world. That is chocolate that tastes of chocolate - rich in cocoa and cocoa butter with a creamy, not milky, finish. This is achieved through sourcing the most ideal raw ingredients and using time-honed concheing and tempering techniques with extremely specialised equipment. The range is built upon our signature blends of Milk, Dark & White Chocolate.
