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 carboy pack of two individual spirals, each spiral carved out of 8-inch long cylindrical segments of premium-grade barrel stave wood. Segments fit directly into the narrow carboy opening without the use of any mesh bags. The wine freely contacts all surfaces of each spiral.
Carboy Suggested Application: One two-spiral pack doses one 5 to 8-gallon carboy 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
Medium Plus Toast contributes aromas of honey and roasted nuts with a hint of coffee and spice.
Medium Toast offers a sweet bouquet with warm vanilla overtones.
Light Toast adds structure and lifts the fruit with a delicate note of coconut.
