BINDS COLOR & ENHANCES TEXTURE
ADDS NON-AGGRESSIVE TANNIN
OakPLUS French Oak Flour assists in masking vegetal overtones, also known as perizines binding color and enhancing texture. The feel in the mouth is bigger, with a touch of non-aggressive tannin. The oak flavor is indiscernible, but the backbone of oak tannin and structure is present, making the future of the wine bigger and fuller.
Ideal for addition at the hopper or poured into the fermenter before or during fermentation, its small particle size makes for easy processing and removal.
