If you are unfamiliar with the flavor profiles of the chips and wish to determine the type and amounts in Laboratory trials, OCI can furnish a sample kit for your assessment. The extraction and flavor varies with each type of chip and toast level. The larger the chip, the longer it takes to extract the oak flavoring. When oak alternative products are added to wine, we recommend circulation of the container and taste testing every two or three days until it meets your taste profile.
