Australian Winter Truffles are the same the variety as the highly prized, European Winter Truffle.
The Australian Winter Truffle season runs June through to August, allowing gourmands, chefs and passionate cooks access to the highest quality truffles during the European summer!
Widely known throughout world cuisine as ‘Perigord’ truffles, Tuber Melanosporum are the most revered black truffle variety in the world. Our Australian truffles are cultivated by knowledgeable and passionate farmers in Western Australia, Victoria and Tasmania. Their skill and craft produce some of the highest quality black winter truffles we have ever seen.
The exterior of these truffles are a deep black colour. The outside surface has a slightly rough finish, which should be quite firm to the touch, with just a hint of softness.
When sliced in half, Black Winter Truffles should demonstrate a clear white marbling on a mahogany brown to dark black background.
Our Black Winter Truffles have a rich, sensational aroma, with earthy flavours reminiscent of chocolate, vanilla, and garlic.
Quality, quality, quality… Our quality control is extremely rigorous because our reputation depends on it. Each truffle is individually checked to ensue it reaches you in optimum condition, which is why we confidently offer our money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the quality.
Our prices are highly competitive, and unlike other Truffle companies, if you order from us we round weights up, not down, so you will always get a better deal!
