OAK: ALTERNATIVES: POWDER

 

 

Pronektar Powder (French Oak)

Three main benefits:

  • It is a very efficient protection against oxidation: this is due to the high rate of tannins (ellagitanins) in French Oak (between 5 and 10%). Ellagitanins take the oxygen and therefore make sure that tannins or pigments of the grapes are not oxidized.

  • It can remove a great part of vegetal aromas (whenever grapes are not picked at their full maturity).

  • It gives some degree of strength and power to must or wines.

Can be used in the trucks or at the crusher.
