Product Description

Innerstave Oak Chips & Fines

  • Oak Chips & Fines can be used during every stage of winemaking.
  • Multi-stage additions are encouraged because making additions along the wine processing lifecycle will impact the end result in different ways.
  • An addition of Innerstave Oak Chips & Fines during fermentation will minimize undesirable vegetal characters, provide co-pigmentation to bind colour and give body and mouthfeel.
  • Innerstave Oak Chips & Fines added during post-primary aging offers tannin, body and barrel flavours based on the chosen toast level.
  • Making an addition just prior to bottling will lift the wine’s flavour profile and refresh the finished oak character.
