In the Cellar

In the cellar.

Not ready to be rolled
The aging still
Not to be rushed

The use of oak plays a significant role in wine making and can have a profound effect on the resulting wine,affecting the color, flavor, tannin profile and texture of the wine. Oak can come into contact with wine in the form of a barrel during the fermentation or aging periods. It can be introduced to the wine in the form of free-floating oak chips or as wood staves (or sticks) added to wine in a fermentation vessel like stainless steel. The use of oak barrels can impart other qualities to wine through the processes of evaporation and low level exposure to oxygen ~ Bernard
