North Mountain Supply oak chips are beneficial for introducing premium oak characters to wines at a low cost while offering positive effects on wine color, aromas, flavor, mouth feel as well as creating depth and body.

Oak chips are intended for use in all phases of winemaking. They contribute to the reduction of vegetal characters, bind color, and build middle body and mouth feel when used during fermentation. Post fermentation will tend to offer noticeable toasty oak components, lift the nose and enhance the body of the wine. In addition, it will impart premium oak characteristics. A small amount added just prior to bottling will heighten the finished oak character and leave a lingering toasty quality.
