Default Pitching Beer on Wine Lees and Oak cubes

I just finished bottling 6 gallons of Shiraz and have the wine lees and med. toast Hungarian oak cubes set aside to use in an upcoming brew.

Having never done this before I was hoping to find some advise as to what beer styles might work best and any techniques I should consider.

Right now I'm leaning towards making a lambic or sour, neither of which I have brewed before. Probably will make 10 gallons but only use lees and wood on 5 gallons of the batch.

Curious if you ever went through with this, and what your process and results were?
