  • Las Vino Pirate Blend Nv

    Las Vino Pirate Blend Nv

    The grapes for the Pirate Blend were selected from 40 year old low yielding vines grown in the north of Margaret River. The vines were originally planted to produce vintage port and are planted in gravelly loam soils that overlook Geographe Bay. The blend is comprised of three Portuguese varieties: Touriga Nacional (40%) for structure, depth and flavour; Tinta Cao (45%) for aroma and finesse; and Sousao (5%) for colour and acidity (and some Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) for good measure).

    Ruby red in hue. The wine displays notes of sweet spice, cinnamon, clove, plum compote, blueberry and dark chocolate. Soft silky tannins with an exotic mix of red berry fruit sweetness and cocoa on the palate. Long, complex and an intriguing finish. Made to age for up to 10 years; perfect with braised pork chops and crispy sage.

    Years: 2015: 70%, 2014: 30%.

    200 dozen produced.

    Funk Estate Jungle Boogie 5.3% 330ml

    With blood orange, lemon and passionfruit, forget what you know about beer and just embrace the sour fruit characters. This hazy and slightly pink beer has a touch of citrus on the nose and a massive attack of sour on the tongue. Brewed for GABS 2016.

  • Overeem Red Wine Cask

    Overeem Red Wine Cask

    A very special and unlikely to be repeated release from Tasmania’s Overeem distillery.

    This is cask OHD-100, the 100th cask filled by founder Casey Overeem, and it is the only time an ex-red wine cask has been used to mature Overeem. Whilst that may happen again in the future it would take at least another five years if they were to lay another one down to maturity, and even so there are no plans to fill another red wine cask.

    This was originally previewed at The Oak Barrel’s annual Whisky Distillers Dinner in August and with just 130 bottles in the release it is almost exclusively available through the distillery themselves.

    Overeem has only ever been matured in ex-sherry and ex-port casks, with a smattering of ex-bourbon casks which are now highly collectable, so the sweet, luscious spirit is not out of its depth in this bold wine oak.

    This is a sweeter, confectionary, expression with macerated fruits and a bit of oak spice. Deep fruits again on the palate, with a sugary sweetness and oak on the finish.

    Very limited quantities. Comes in gift box with two branded Overeem Glencairn whisky glasses.
