Oak chips American
American oak chips add a more vanilla-like taste to your wine. Medium toasted chips can add almond and caramel flavour and are mainly used in light wines. Heavy toasted chips produce a more nutty and roasted flavour to wines and are mainly used in heavy and full-bodied wines. Dosage: 5-30 g/10 l wine. Contact time: a few days to 3 months. Can be added to the must or wine (or beer!).
Why should you use oak in wine?
The use of oak during wine making will change some characteristics of your wine: taste, aroma, preservation and colour stability.
3 ways to add these characteristics:
How much chips to use and how long to mature in the barrel? The more chips you add, the shorter the contact time. For wooden barrels, maturation time depends on how many times the barrel has already been used.
