  • ABC CRAFTED SERIES American Premium Medium-Toasted Chip's high density, low porosity, and permeability make them ideal for use in wine-making.

  • FLAVOUR PROFILE
    • Vanilla
    • Caramel
    • Chocolate
    • Coconut
    • Clove
  • APPLYING TO WINE:
    • Minimizes modification of the wine’s tannin profile due to its low ellagitannin content. Has less impact on structured mouthfeel than European oaks.
    • Has a significant short-term organoleptic impact due to its high volatile compound content.
    • This oak rapidly transfers its characteristic aromas to the wine, making it suitable for short-duration treatments.
  • ORGANOLEPTIC QUALITIES:
    • American Premium Medium-Toasted Chips having a high glycosidic polymer content that produces toasted caramel, chocolate, coconut, clove, and vanilla significantly increases the wine’s aromatic complexity.
  • DOSAGE:
    • In wine, 4 grams per 1 L (33.8 oz), dosage time will depend on the degree of transfer sought and the intensity of the characteristics desired.
    • For chips, treatment time varies between 0 and 4 weeks.
    • Users are recommended to perform prior testing to determine dosage and to taste the wine frequently to identify the optimal treatment time in each case. 
  • INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
    • Chips: To optimize the transfer of the oak's beneficial properties to the wine, position the sacks of chips at varying depths within the container.
    • 50% of the oak at the top of the container and 50% of the oak at the bottom of the container.
    • Shake the sacks once a week. 
  • PHYSICAL APPEARANCE:
    • Brown chip's colour tone varies according to the toasting
  • STORAGE
    • Store in the original packaging in a cool, dry place.

They were oakey

Not sure how to rate oak chips? They were oakey. I guess they smelled nice? They are soaking now in a batch of Nebbiolo, so if they perform like the same ones I purchased previously, I'm sure they will be great. With this particular kit, I won't know for at least 6 months. I'm sure they'll be kick *** awesome, as long as I dont overdo it. I now mix 50 grams per 6 gallons so they don't overtake the overall flavor.

pinot grigio

16l, heavy bodied kit. Very clear even prior to fermentation, little sediment in primary fermentation. End product brilliantly clear, excellent acidity, citrus flavors with good underlying pinot taste.

Easy to Make, Great Tasting Merlot

I was happily surprised the wine came out so well considering I am a beginner at this.

American Oak

The American Oak chips add a beautiful flavor of mild oak. Much better than French Oak chips. We've used both, and American Oak prevails.
