CHow long does the wine spend in oak barrels?
The time spent in oak barrels can range from six months to several years, depending on the producer. Depending on the grape variety, the type of wine and above all according to the taste desired by the winemaker, he will decide the number of months that the wine must remain in barrels.
The more a barrel is used, the more it loses its properties, but again, it all depends on the winemaker’s wish for his wine.
A matter of taste!
In addition to the tannins, the oak barrel brings secondary aromas (including fresh wood) which will vary according to the type of wood, grape variety and the time spent in the barrel!
It’s all a matter of taste!
