Lindt: A new taste of Excellence
It's exquisitely smooth, it's delicately rich, and it's the favourite dark chocolate of Australians. And now there are two new, melt-in-the mouth additions to the Lindt Excellence range, passionately crafted by the Lindt Master Chocolatiers.
Sourcing quality ingredients for our chocolate is incredibly important
Their scrupulous bean-to-bar philosophy ensures that only the highest quality cocoa from the world's most renowned regions makes the cut for the unique taste of Lindt chocolate. With complete control over every step from bean to bar, Lindt developed their own sustainable cocoa bean supply chain to preserve the best cocoa whilst improving the quality of life and working conditions for its farmers. Because the finest quality produce goes hand in hand with sustainability.
When it comes to expanding their range of Excellence Chocolate Blocks, the Lindt Master Chocolatiers take their inspiration from an exceptional, high quality ingredient, or the innovation of a delicious new taste fusion. And the finest quality chocolate deserves the finest flavours - be it the finest fruit or carefully selected nuts, masterfully roasted in house to ensure they are at their freshest when they meet their chocolate match.
Discover Excellence Cranberry, Almond & Hazelnut
Prepare for all five senses to be enchanted by this decadent new combination. The exquisite dark chocolate, lifted by a subtle tartness from the cranberries, is perfectly complemented by the delicious nutty crunch of roasted almond flakes and hazelnut pieces. A finishing touch of hand-harvested fleur de sel truly elevates the flavours; a celebration of this multi-textural delight. Enjoy Excellence Cranberry, Almond & Hazelnut as a first-in-the-world experience - this new flavour is making its debut in Australia and is an elegant version of a fruit and nut chocolate.
Unwrap Excellence Honeycomb
Delight in crispiness and luxurious crunch, offset by smoothness and velvety texture. The beautifully golden honeycomb has an airy brittleness that elegantly contrasts with the signature-smooth texture of the chocolate for a sophisticated textural sensation. It exudes a rich sweetness in every delicate crunch and melt-in-the-mouth moment, creating a dark chocolate match made in sensory heaven.
Enjoy the ultimate Excellence experience
"Lindt Excellence certainly has become a favourite of chocolate lovers with refined palates and a taste for high quality chocolate." So what could be better than the luxuriously deep cocoa flavour and creamy, silky texture of Lindt's finest dark chocolate? Chocolate lovers and wine lovers unite, because the answer could lie in these doubly decadent pairing suggestions…
As Selector publisher Paul Diamond says, "When matching wine with chocolate, and before you start thinking about flavour, you always need to think about the intensity or weight of the chocolate."
A great match for the Excellence Cranberry, Almond & Hazelnut is the Thorn-Clarke Grenache Shiraz 2017. A more full-bodied wine, its high tannin content creates a deep complexity to match the dark chocolate, while the dark fruit flavours meld nicely with the sweetness of the cranberry fruit pieces.
The crisp, airy Excellence Honeycomb on the other hand calls for a more delicate pairing. "You need a wine that balances with the chocolate otherwise crucial texture and tastes will be lost." The Pfeiffer Late Harvest Muscadelle 2013 offers just the right dose of sweetness combined with a mouth-watering acidity to superbly complement the delicate honeycomb crunch. It's the ideal after dinner indulgence.
