Demptos Cooperage releases the American oak Paradox®
After worldwide success with its French oak counterpart, we are excited to announce our newest barrel release: the American oak Paradox®.
The shell of the Paradox® barrel is protected against direct exposure to the flames so that colour and toasting aromas are not found in the wines matured in them. Wines remain more faithful to their aromatic character and the barrel has little impact on the wines’ tannin structure.
Tasting notes : The Paradox American oak toast elevates the fruity character of a wine with an emphasis on building mid-palate volume. The Paradox toasting process has less structure than a traditional fire toasted barrel, resulting in sweeter, more subtle notes of oak.
