Oak alternatives

Oak barrels are still considered the optimal treatment for high-quality wines; however, oak barrels also pose several major challenges, which is why alternative methods and tools have been developed to give winemakers more control and flexibility when it comes to oak ageing. In wine, wood compounds enhance structure and perceived sweetness, impact its aromatic profile and can help with color stabilization. Defining the targeted wine profile, time available for ageing and budget help in selecting the perfect oak alternative. With the Enartis Incanto Range of oak chips, ministaves, Barrel Boost and soluble alternatives, winemakers have ultimate control over their oak program meeting all wine needs and expectations.
