Starward Nova Whisky 700ml
Starward Distillery is in Melbourne, the foodie capital of Australia, full of casual brilliance. They ditch the airs, graces and focus on flavour instead. Red wine barrels are used to mature Starward whisky. The whisky ingredients are sourced locally from just a day's drive away. Then, in the wildly varied Melbourne weather, Starward whisky draws out its signature fruity, delicious flavour in just three short years.This is elemental maturation and the reason why Starward whisky could not be made anywhere else. Founder, David Vitale, grew up in a big Italian family. He's food obsessed without ever getting too serious or formal about it. And he knows Starward whisky feels right at home at those moments spent around the dinner table.
Starward Nova is matured exclusively in red wine barrels from wineries that make great reds like the Australian shiraz, cabernets and pinot noirs. This whisky reflects Melbourne in every sip. From the vibrant foodie scene to the wild weather to the world-class, cool climate wine. The fluctuating weather in Melbourne makes Nova work hard in the barrel, extracting maximum flavour from the wood in just a short time. This process is called elemental maturation.
Aromas of bright flavours of red berries and orchard fruit coated in soft oak spice.
Rich red berry pudding, vanilla, caramel and spice on the palate. Balanced and long finish with the sweetness fading and the delicious flavour lasting.
