  • They enhance the wine’s organoleptic properties by transferring interesting compounds in the aroma and flavour phase.
  • Their fine grain, high porosity, and permeability make them ideal for use in winemaking. This oak’s slow component transfer makes it particularly suitable for medium- and long-duration treatments.

  • APPLYING TO WINE:
    • Enhances aromatic complexity by transferring vanilla and spice aromas.
    • Preserves the wine’s natural fruitiness due to its slow, gradual transfer of oak aromas.
    • Creates a structured mouthfeel thanks to its ellagitannin content.
  • ORGANOLEPTIC QUALITIES:
    • With an intense and elegant double toasting, Iberian oak maximizes the wine’s organoleptic complexity. It creates sought-after volatile compounds, such as pyranones (caramel), 4-methylguiacol (coffee and smoke), and phenolic compounds that give the wine a pleasing licorice aroma. They also increase the wine’s spice profile and create a more balanced mouthfeel.
  • 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 color tone varies according to the toasting
  • STORAGE
