Starward Nova Whisky 700ml
A love of craft whisky brought David Vitale to Tasmania’s Lark Distillery where he stayed for three years before establishing Starward in 2009. Originally occupying a disused hanger on the edge of Essendon airport, you’ll now find him in Port Melbourne, where the team have built a beautiful distillery just outside the CBD from which they craft whiskies that have won the whisky world over.
Notes from the maker: "A fruity, double distilled single malt made with Australian barley and craft brewers’ yeast for extra flavour.
Lightly charred or steamed barrels sourced from Australian wineries making great shiraz, cabernets and pinot noirs. Often filled fresh when the barrel is still wet with wine. Matured in Melbourne’s wildly varied climate for three years.
Exceptional length thanks to the red wine barrels. Bright aromatic notes of red berries, orchard fruits, vanilla, caramel and soft oak spice."
