Practical examples of use
On varietal white wines (Sauvignon Blanc, Colombard) with fresh fruit profile, with the aim of adding volume and roundness to balance the acidity, without bringing any toasted oak aroma: 1 stave/hl (0.04 sq ft/gal) at the start of primary fermentation.
On fresh and full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with harsh tannins, aiming for roundness to coat the tannins, without modifying the typical varietal character: 2.5 staves/hl (0.10 sq ft/gal) at beginning of aging.
