The Oak Infusion Spiral releases fresh, new-barrel, toasted oak aroma and flavor through its patented, spiral-cut design. The abundance of cross-grain exposure speeds extraction of oak compounds 8 times faster than conventional parallel-grain exposure associated with barrel staves, inserts, sticks and chains of oak. Spiral-cut design also enables oak to submerge quickly into wine, minimizing exposure to air while creating more layered complexity.
One barrel pack consists of 6 individual mesh wrapped spirals, all connected in a chain. Segments fit directly through the barrel opening and the chain mesh bags allow for easy removal when the desired oak level is reached.
Barrel Suggested Application: One six-spiral pack doses one 60 gallon barrel with new-barrel aromas and flavors. For lighter dosage, cut off one or more spirals.
Heavy Toast adds pronounced caramelized wood, with notes of smoke and toasted bread.
MEDIUM PLUS TOAST
