Wine products using solid wood cask storage taste better mellow, won many customers' recognition and like. What should we pay special attention to when applying it? Next, I will explain some common misunderstandings to you.
Myth 1: everything can be loaded in.
Solid wood barrel is not only for the benefit of wine, and not all wine will become good after experiencing it. Only "natural and beautiful" wine can withstand the cultivation of solid wood barrel. For the wine with weak foundation, if it must be cultivated in it, it will make the quality of the wine more rough and taste more bitter. The only fruit flavor will also be suppressed by the oak flavor, leaving only the pungent oak flavor.
Error 2: wine can not use solid wood powder, solid wood chip, solid wood plate.
Solid wood barrels are essential for the production of high-quality wine, but not all wine can be aged in solid wood barrels. When the wine is thin and the tannin is weak, it can use oak chips, oak boards, etc.
Myth 3: solid wood barrels bring benefits to wine.
Casks are not all good for wine, sometimes even bad. For example, the solid wood barrels that are not cleaned or too old will not only bring the strange taste of mildew and rotten wood to the wine, but also lead to excessive oxidation and deterioration of the wine.
Myth 4: the barrel can be used indefinitely.
Wine is stored in solid wood barrels, mainly depends on the surface of solid wood to communicate with wine. With the increase of barrel age, the composition of solid wood will change. With the increase of application frequency, the old solid wood barrels are easily polluted by harmful microorganisms. There must be a certain age limit for the application of solid wood barrels, which need to be replaced in a certain period of time.
