PROVIDES OAK IMPACT CHARACTERISTICS OF A NEW BARREL
ENHANCES COLOR & MOUTHFEEL

Barrel Innerstave is for use in a neutral oak barrel. It is a system of barrel-length oak staves containing 18.16 sq. ft. of surface area. The staves are held in place in a radial design by lining the barrel with polyethylene rods. Our experienced in-house cooperage team installs the system through the opened head of a neutral barrel. The absence of staves at the bunghole and the bottom lees pool leaves racking and stirring uninhibited. The system can be easily cleaned with standard barrel cleaning procedures and works with the Tom Beard Barrel Washer™.

Barrel Innerstave can be used in all phases of winemaking and is designed to impart oak flavor at the same rate as new premium oak barrels. The system works within the framework of a comprehensive barrel program to augment total premium oak flavor profiles, while moderating the higher cost of purchasing all new barrels.
