Oak Solutions Group Launches Innovative Tank Stave, Cuvée No. 3 Espresso Toast


Date: 03/15/12

Oak Solutions Group has launched the third edition to its Cuvée tank stave series: Cuvée No. 3 Espresso Toast. This new tank stave exhibits distinct espresso character thanks to an innovative stave contour that toasts differently than the traditional stave shape.

“Instead of having a smooth surface, Cuvée No. 3 Espresso Toast tank staves are planed to have a rippled silhouette,” explained Kyle Sullivan, assistant director. “The resulting ridges toast more quickly than the grooved portion of each stave and also radiate heat deeper into the underlying layers of oak.”

When combined with infrared toasting technology, this creates a complex gradient of dark roasted flavors. As a result, Cuvée No. 3 is characterized as an opulent flavor blend, including concentrated notes of coffee and bittersweet chocolate.

“Just as the Italian masters have perfected the espresso roast, carefully orchestrating a delicate balance of concentrated flavors, Cuvée No. 3 imparts a rich blend of flavors across the toast gradient,” said Sullivan. “The balance of roasted flavors makes this tank stave an excellent choice for a variety of wine styles and varietals.”

Oak Solutions Group is a premium oak products company focused on providing expert advice and unparalleled selection. Oak Solutions Group distributes two innovative product lines: evOAK forward thinking oak products and tru/tan innovative oak tannins.
