Description

French and American Oak Blend
Oak Chips 4 oz. - Mocha


This blend of American and French oak combines the particular flavors of the French oak — spices and wood — with the American oak adding layers of aroma with lactones during the aging of the wine. The unique toasting process reaps higher intensity caramel, mocha, and coffee flavors along with toasted and roasted elements, and also heats more of the oak woods. The mocha adds complexity to the wine and enhances the fruitiness coming from the grapes.


Complementarity

French and American oak have their own characteristics. French oak brings better structure, length, also presenting more spicy and toasted aromas. American oak creates better roundness and more sweet aromas (mocha, caramel, vanilla). When they are processed together, they complement each other and create unique synergy. XtraMocha is an ideal blend of proprotions combined with a special long and intense toast.


Synergy

This blend has a higher CAOX (antioxidant level) than the 2 components alone. Wine fruitness is enhanced.
