Oak It Up! – July 2007
Many customers have sampled the wonderful oak flavours of some of our CellarCraft kits that include oak cubes. Now we will be offering these cubes for you to try in your wines if you are a big fan of big oakey wines. The cubes can be added to your carboy after stabilizing your wine. This results in a longer exposure time to the oak and consequently big bold oak tastes in your wine. You can still use the powdered oak that may come with the kit in the primary, simply use the cubes to increase the oakiness of your wine.
The oak cubes are approximately ½” in size and won’t plug your siphon hose when you rack or transfer your wine.
