French Oak Infusion Spiral
The Oak Infusion Spiral releases fresh, new-barrel, toasted oak aroma and flavor through its patented, spiral-cut design. The abundance of cross-grain exposure speeds extraction of oak compounds 8 times faster than conventional parallel-grain exposure associated with barrel staves, inserts, sticks and chains of oak. Spiral-cut design also enables oak to submerge quickly into wine, minimizing exposure to air while creating more layered complexity. Each spiral carved out of 9-inch long cylindrical segments of premium-grade barrel stave wood, are contained and linked together by a food-grade nylon mesh. The mesh also permits wine to freely contact all surfaces of each spiral.
Available in Light, Medium and Medium-Heavy
