ABC CRAFTED SERIES 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

I recommend this product

pinot grigio

16l, heavy bodied kit. Very clear even prior to fermentation, little sediment in primary fermentation. End product brilliantly clear, excellent acidity, citrus flavors with good underlying pinot taste.
