Gastropark Bar is all about sustainability.  We are fortunate to live and work in a beautiful region such as Cam Ranh Land, and we take seriously the responsibility to look after the place.  It is in this vein that we are attempting to the source, as much as possible, the wine that is sustainably produced, and that has not travelled too far.  We have a small but interesting wine list composed of some regular suspects and some unusual varietals, and nearly a third of the choices have been produced using organic or biodynamic methods.

Organic because there is no doubt that industrial and chemical inputs have negative long term impacts on the environment.  These wines are delicious, fresh, lively and well suited to the menu produced by Chef Andy Wood, whose extensive resume includes The Four in Hand, Paddington, and 4Fourteen in Surry Hills, working with Chef Colin Fassnidge.

Choosing Your Wedding Cocktails

Sparkling wine, wine, and beer are the standard beverages to be found at most weddings. They all have a purpose of course; celebration, matching with food, pleasing the crowd, it pretty much goes without saying that your guests will be happy with wisely selected choices. I am sure though, that most people, when planning their wedding, are looking for ways to stand out and make their celebrations exceptional, not just for themselves, but for all of their guests. More and more, brides and grooms are looking for a signature cocktail, to make a memorable statement of style.

How to choose though, from the literally thousands of cocktails and variations out there? I thought it might work if I was to break it down into categories.
Colour: perhaps you have chosen a colour-related theme for your wedding, it might be reflected in bridesmaid dresses, flowers, reception table decoration. The signature cocktail could come along for the ride, colours are virtually endless, created from fruit, liqueurs, garnishes, and glassware.

Base spirit: In cold weather, perhaps a warming spirit, like scotch, dark rum (spiced?), or cognac. To cool down and refresh, start with white rum, vodka, gin or tequila. The base spirit could also work to a theme, for instance, Caribbean nights with rum, Gatsby sophistication with gin, Mexican fiesta with tequila.
Method: Consider the cocktail preparation method and how that will work with your plans and budget. To provide handmade individual cocktails for a crowd can be labour intensive and expensive, but also cool and classy. Pre-mixing a large batch, and pouring on demand is potentially quicker and more efficient (think fruit-based punch, sangria or classic Pimms Cup).
A final thought for you: if you are happy with your signature drink, and why wouldn’t you be? Make up a large batch, and provide it for your guests in small bottles, or mason jars, complete with a nice label as a memento of your special day.

The Kalleske family has been involved in the wine industry in the Barossa Valley since the 1800s. Primarily they make wines with their estate-grown fruit, which is all produced using organic farming techniques, and minimal intervention in the winery. The Pirathon Shiraz is a slightly different case, the fruit for this wine is sourced from premium growers in the north-western Barossa, considered to be the pinnacle of “Pirathon” section for Shiraz. The wine is the result of a blend of grapes from these growers, the different vineyard locations adding complexity to the result.
Troy Kalleske, the winemaker, favours traditional vinification, using open fermenters and basket presses to maximise the flavours in the wine.
The 2012 Pirathon Shiraz is a delicious example of Barossa Shiraz. The lively yet brooding aromas are evident on opening the bottle and pouring the first glass, let alone plunging the nose in for a whiff. The wine pours deep purple to almost black, coating the inside of the glass. The aromas are of black fruits, plums and sweet blackberries, with a touch of black pepper spice and a backbone of oak. Despite being a full-bodied Barossa Shiraz, the Pirathon shows fine-grained tannins, and a luscious mouthfeel, dangerously easy to drink!

Get your hands on a bottle of this wine at Gastropark Bar, enjoy it with a classic Beef Bourgignon, beef brisket slowly braised in red wine, beef stock and aromatic herbs, served with smoked bacon lardons, sautéed mushrooms and baked eschalot, as prepared by chef Andy Wood.
