Oak additives
The new trend in wine flavoring is here.

Experienced enologists state that nothing can replace a genuine new wood barrel but at the same time acknowledge the fact that the oak chip flavoring technique offers very good results in INOX tanks and old wood barrels that are being used for more than 2 years and have lost the ability to add flavor.

 

INSTRUCTIONS - GENERAL INFORMATION

DOSAGE: 1-4 grams per liter of wine. Using more is not recommended.

USAGE: During fermentation they aid color stabilization and during maturation they aid flavoring.

They are inserted into the wine with the use of a separating material (filter, thin grill, pantyhose).

They are not re-usable.

No preparation is necessary. If you have to wash them, use mineral water at room temperature.

Time of operation is 2 to 5 weeks. After that, remove them from the wine. The oak chips effect quicker than the pastilles. The pastilles however may add more body to the wine.

Store in cold and dark, odor free environment.

Maximum storing time: Approximately 1 year
