T.W. Boswell Introduces the Cool Climate Series, a New Line of Barrels Emphasizing Fruit & Terroir


Date: 08/06/13

NAPA, Calif. (August 6, 2013) – Cooperages 1912 is expanding the T.W. Boswell barrel collection to include three new barrels as part of a Cool Climates Series. This is in direct response to an increased focus in the wine industry on fruit-driven attributes as well as the continued growth of cool climate wines that evoke this style.

“Cool climate wines tend to be very fruit focused, with higher acidity and delicate overall tasting notes,” said Jason Stout, international sales director. “Our team researched and experimented to carefully develop a line of barrels that responds perfectly to this style.”

The low-impact barrels featured in the series are crafted exclusively with 36 month, extra fine grain oak as part of T.W. Boswell’s ‘Special Reserve’ premium wood selection.

“Our Special Reserve wood matches extremely well with the fruit-forward style many winemakers are currently seeking,” said Stout. “We select the finest grain oak to undergo extended aging, contributing to the elegant and refined character of these barrels.”

The Cool Climate Series is immediately available, launching in time for the 2013 harvest.

Cooperages 1912 is a fourth-generation, family-owned company committed to crafting premium French, European and American oak barrels under the brands T.W. Boswell, World Cooperage and Fusion Designer Barrels. Over the past century, the Boswell family has crafted distinctive barrels that define the industry. The Cooperages 1912 team consults directly with winemakers to ensure an optimal pairing between wine and barrel.
