Barrels 101

OAK is best suited to aging and flavouring wine. Coopers (barrel makers) use oak to make barrels. The two main types of oak used are French and American oak, named for the region and country in which they are grown.

French: adds subtle flavours, spices, vanilla, silky textures, slower integration.

American: stronger robust flavours, butterscotch, coconut, faster integration.

NEW VS OLD: New barrels are those that have never been used before, these will integrate flavours more aggressively. Old oak barrels used previously will take much longer to integrate oak flavour. New oak adds a much higher cost to the winemaking process. Winemakers generally prefer to use a combination of both to add complexity.

BARREL SIZES EXPLAINED: The size and age of a barrel plays a specific role in the winemaking process. Smaller barrels aggressively add flavour. Larger barrels slowly integrate a small amount (if any) oak flavour into the wine. Below are the most commonly used sizes of barrels in winemaking:

  • Barrique 225 litre
  • Hogshead 300 litre
  • Puncheon 500 litre
  • Tun up to 1000 litre
  • Foudre up to 2500 litre

SOLERA SYSTEM: A Solera System is a unique & complex maturation process. Small amounts of wine are removed from the barrel and topped up with fresh wine each vintage. This fractional blending can take many years to achieve the desired result.
