Provides new oak characteristics
Structure for aromatic integration & complexity

OakPLUS Chips are recommended during fermentation, post fermentation, and for pre-bottle enhancement. OakPLUS will minimize undesirable vegetal characters, provide co-pigmentation to bind color, and give body and mouthfeel. OakPLUS added during aging offers body and true premium barrel flavors. A small amount added just prior to bottling will lift the flavor to refresh the finished oak character and leave a lingering toasty quality.
