Nektar ID (Instant Decision) is the result of a unique method of extraction of oak concentrates as a means for carrying out immediate trials.

This innovative process, developed by the R&D teams of Radoux and Pronektar, has made it possible to isolate the aromatic and gustatory compounds of the products in the Pronektar range, in the form of liquid concentrates.

Nektar ID is used in laboratory trials, making it possible to obtain an instant vision of the final organoleptic profile of the wine or spirit after aging.

Nektar ID is easy to use, and helps guide the user in the choice of products, dose rates and blending, enabling him to control the final oak character to be imparted to the wine while it is in the tank. The result is immediate.

A real decision making tool, NEKTAR ID allows winemakers to make the best choice depending on the type of wine or spirit - with immediate visibility of the result - and perfect control over the quantities and cost involved.

Today, NEKTAR ID is used by Pronektar’s team and made available to oenologists and consultants involved with winemaking and distillation around the world.

Since being developed in July 2016, Nektar ID has been distributed in over 20 countries and has already helped define hundreds of wine profiles.
