OAK MASTER® improves the sensory properties of wines and spirits by releasing moderate amounts of the compounds involved in the senses of smell and taste. The organoleptic benefits of using OAK MASTER® infusion closures for wine, beer and spirits vary according to the botanical source of the wood, their origin, weight, and the toasting intensity received .
OAK MASTER® infusion closures are principally characterized by their antioxidant properties and, thanks to their ellagitannin content they also help to enhance the wine’s, beers and spirits structure by increasing the sensation of volume in the mouthfeel, adding sweetness (thanks to the oak’s polysaccharides) and help preserve varietal characteristics by absorbing the volatile compounds in the wine that produce undesirable aromas.
