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

American oak contains higher concentrations of volatile compounds and derivatives of thermal degradation of lignin, but lower concentrations of ellagitannins.

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 chips color tone varies according to toasting
