Dark Rock Islay Whisky Barrel Oak Chips - 100g50g Oak Chippings

Adding oak to wine, often through barrel aging or oak staves, enhances its character. Oak imparts flavors like vanilla, caramel, and spice, contributing to complexity. The porous nature of oak allows gradual oxygen exchange, softening harsh tannins and promoting subtle oxidation, resulting in a smoother mouthfeel. The duration of oak aging varies; white wines may require a few months, while red wines may benefit from extended aging, sometimes over a year. Monitoring the wine’s progression through regular tastings helps determine the optimal oak influence, ensuring a balanced and harmonious integration of flavors.

Will treat up to 5 gallons of wine.
