OAK Barrel Opportunities!
Here at the shop we have lots of options for oak barrel ageing. For an extra cost of $30 / batch we can oak any red wines.
Why Oak Barrel?
The benefits of oak barrel aging is two parts; the slow introduction of oxygen into the wine and imparting the subtle flavours of the wood into the wine. Wine, as it rests in the barrel, goes through subtle chemical changes, resulting in greater complexity and a softening of the harsh tannins and flavours present at the end of fermentation. Basically, you can drink it sooner!
We do large batches in big barrels available seasonally, or 23L single batch barrels available year round.
